"From the Shadow to the light,
I See You"

During my first years in Adelaide – South Australia, I faced the challenge of living in a new country. The cultural differences and the difficulty of expressing myself in a second language made me feel that people were looking through me and couldn’t see who I was. Looking around, I saw other people feeling the same, each one with their reasons and a hidden wish to be seen.

In this scenario, the “I see you” project came to light. Through the sessions I encountered extraordinary souls who revealed the brilliance that makes us unique even in the shadows of everyday challenges.

This project has allowed me to connect with diverse people of different ages, cultures and life stories. Definitely, the “I see you” became a landmark along my photographic journey, enriching my perspective and reaffirming the profound beauty that lies within each of us.
