Portraits of artists from 19th Symposium of Essen
World in change
I am interested in people's secret life, in their hidden dark side. we are so beautiful, nobody can tell us more about beauty. Beauty is our natural body made by hands, different one to another. Beauty is our way of truth.
PROFILE - SELF INTERVIEW based on a questionnaire by Marcel Proust. My idea is that it's very interesting a portrait of a person made answering to questions. Try it by yourself too.
