Photographer's Note

...wasn't you my subject....but thanks for the nice smile!:)

Another one image took at the open-air photos show of Olivier and Danielle Föllmi.
This open air exhibition will take place from 16 September to 24 December in the streets of Milan.
Conceived to acclaim the riches of world cultures and show how much they are intertwined and know no barriers, Wisdoms of Mankind associates the images of one of the best known contemporary photographers, Olivier Föllmi, with quotations chosen with great sensibility by Danielle Pons-Föllmi, researcher in human science. The project brings together thoughts from great world thinkers and extracts from the cultural heritage of different peoples that have been transmitted orally. Each of the inspirational and generous texts respond to fundamental questions giving a sense about life, family, children, our society and our future. Each year Wisdoms of Mankind visits a new culture to uncover its thoughts as a source of inspiration to the spirituality of the human race, associating texts and photographs to promote this heritage. The streets of Milan will play hosts to this magnificent project, presenting thoughts from India, the Himalayas and Africa with an exhibition of impressive photos (120 x 180 cms).
