As I mentioned to Amy in her post, making us search for those precious moments among old photographs is like digging into the depths of our hearts.
That is the true essence of photography! Don’t you think?
Impossible to forget that weekend I learned to skate.
More than 40 years since I got those old skates I was always afraid to use.
As you can see I put on some modern skates and all possible protections… The fear was not gone, but I was able to manage it well.
Precious moments can be joyful and painful, both feel them at the same time. As with these latest images. My mother surrounded by her grandchildren, changing those funny hats with them so I could take their pictures. They were the hardest pictures I’ve ever had to take in my life, with my heart tight and I can’t stop smiling. My mother was very ill and we all, except the little, knew that it would not last long.
I always say that I don’t like to portray people and when I look for special moments in my images, I always find people… This makes me think…
