In his own words:
“In 2006 I developed my style of portrait photography within traditional communities, heavily influenced by the dramatic pictures of chiaroscuro artists. Chiaroscuro is an Italian term which literally means light-dark. Back then, at the very start of my Africa journey, I was buzzing with energy having met people of real magnetism just days into my trip. I was excited by extraordinary people and fascinating cultures and wondered how I could possibly communicate and express these feelings of excitement to friends and family back home.“
His extremely evocative photos (one of which is below as well, from his landscapes portfolio) can be found on his website, or via his Twitter feed or Facebook page. Beautiful captures.
Hope you enjoy!
