THANKS – ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
Through my travels and meetings, races, colors, borders have become blurred in exchange for a smile, a handshake.
It is thanks to the hospitality of these people that I had the chance to know and share excerpts of life, rites and customs unique, unforgettable.
Those who have sacrificed their meagre earnings in exchange for sumptuousness of costume have guided, informed, encouraged, protected and cared for me throughout my research and travels.
The hospitality of these humble and smiling people greatly touched me, spurring me to dedicate myself to this project.
… Hoping that through these images shine through all the emotions, love and sincerity with which these beings glow …
May the spirit of these peoples be captured by my endeavours and not be lost !
