I once receiveｄ a beautiful compliment from my mother, she told me “I can almost hear the music in your pictures!”, and that is what gives meaning to my work.
Thanks to the approach that the Fujifilm X-Series cameras gives me, due to their fine design, their image quality and their lightweight, they give me the chance to have access to places and people it would not be easy with other cameras.
