comments from website visitors:

This speaks to me, the way photographs of my own life speak to me. I don't know the story, but the picure makes me wonder. Something serious is the feeling. Perhaps many photos have a bit of serious, even if there is not a sad story. Because they capture a moment in time which is over. Time is part of the story. Photography is always operating with time.

Hands that feed a family


Under a watchful gaze


When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
