I spent 3 months in Italy this summer and got to know the locals in the village I was staying at. I adore especially the elders that gather every night at the piazza to talk to one another. What a wonderful way of life to connect. I see this disappearing, the old way of life, the values, the craftsmanship. It is disappearing everywhere in the world where convenience and instant gratification has slowly destroyed the beauty of slowing down, patience and hard work.
Next fall I intend to put on my first solo show in Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre to show the images of the locals and their hard work, which is in danger of disappearing.
