“From the Shadow to the light

I see you,

your unique story,

and your colourful soul”

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 am. 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 to show that we have the brightness 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 stories. Definitely, the “I see you” became a milestone in my photographic pathway.
