250 passaport-size photos taken to narrate the beauty and richness of a population diversity .
I met the majority of these people just a few minutes before they stood in front of my camera.
Just a few moments to get know a little bit of their stories . So little time .
A roll film for each of them . Each film ten shots .One , two, three four, five, six, seven, eight, nine , ten . Too little time .
Little time yet enough to capture their expressions of dignity , pride of their sense of belonging , of joy, of perfection .
Ten shots . Nothing else . No interference . No instructions .
The result are the photos themselves : simple , real, honest
The beauty and the miracle of the ethnic diversity characterizing the Brazilian people prevails . Fear of diversity is fear of the unknown . The attempt to cancel differences, setting up rules and standards models is a self-limiting and a sterile choice .
To understand and respect another person from oneself , with his own beliefs , his own value and his physical features means establishing new means of communication that protect the individuality , the richness and the diversity that surround us .
Each one of them show that once you wear "brazilianity" you can't wipe it off .
This project is a collection of portraits with no aesthetic pretensions , it just want to illustrate and celebrate the beauty of diversity among the people .
