India - Sri Lanka

The exhibitionThe Beauty of a People, India - Sri Lanka , presents in a few paintings, my encounter with the astonishing cultural and social richness of the peoples of India and Sri Lanka, photographic expedition 2017 and 2019. Thanks to the photography, I was able to explore far beyond their exoticism, the warmth and beauty of the people and their country.
I sought by photography to capture through the vibrant colors that reign everywhere, the scent of spices, the quiet happiness of everyday life in the often stunning and noisy conditions of cities. Despite the state of poverty, filth and indigence, we find deep down in the people, a kind of serenity that emerges in a fabric of pride, courage and almost mystical resignation.
Exhibition: a selection of 132 paintings , several in very large format
