"Safari" means "Travel"

My Scholarship entry - Just a glimpse of Kenya

Kenya | Saturday, 22 November 2014 | 5 photos

I always felt a pressure to move and travel, even if in my early years maybe it was not totally conscious. I graduated in 2007 in foreign languages to increase the possibility to understand and learn about other counties and cultures. Some years later I discover photography, started travelling seriously, often alone, and realized that I felt "at home" everywhere, expecially behind a lens. This year I attended a masterclass in Travel Reportage, but I feel I still have a lot to learn and a lot of picture to take to become a good photographer.
I'm interested in anthropology, religions, philosophy, relations between humans and nature, and generally in every different point of view. I also love drawing and painting, self-taught, and have a great passion for art and images, both paintings and photographs: I'm looking for the beauty, the astonishing beauty of the reality, that is always there, in front of our eyes, even if sometimes it's hard to see it.
Photography helps me getting closer and pushes me to explore, win fears, dare, undestand, accept and love. I think the Travel is every day's life, but if I could choose a place to see it would be latin America. Oh, and Iceland, too!
