..."(saw-watching) describes the spirit of this series of photographs, I looked at the people portrayed, those beings who traveled the places I found on the trip. They do not know they were photographed, the qualities of the camera "Widelux" allowed me to fool them, that's why the person's portrait is always on the margins of the image".
