Going Home – 21 boxes

Going Home – 21 boxes

We packed all our belongings: 21 boxes, 300 kg ready to be shipped to Italy. Now just the original furniture provided by the Compound is left and Villa 23 doesn’t look as cozy and familiar as we were used to. Melinda and Augustina are excited by all the movement and changes but at the end […]

Last 60 with my 50 – Street Portraits

Let’s close the series of Saudi with the true protagonists of our adventure in the Kingdom: the people! This is in fact more an exercise to win my shyness with one-on-one photography than a comprehensive collection of portraits of the people we’ve met. Below I have grouped the 8 portraits that close the mini-project ‘Last […]

Our adventure in Saudi Arabia ha come to an end and we are already thinking at what soon will be our new home. We have 60 days, to capture how we see KSA after being here for 3 great years. This portrait, shot with a 50mm, is part of my mini-project before starting a new fantastic […]

The next two portraits were taken at my office:  two colleagues who accepted to become part of the blog. This experience working abroad allowed me to be in touch with people and stories extremely different from my own: each story comes following its own path and evolves in ways that are unpredictable. Looking forwards to […]

Last 60 with my 50 – Street Portrait 4

Portrait number 4 of the series is about one of our compound worker. I like this picture and how he’s posing in front of the camera with an open and friendly look: in essence what these guys have been doing with us for the past three years. We wish to him and all his folks […]

Last 60 with my 50 – Street Portrait 3

Portrait number 3 is dedicated to a great one: The Doc. We had the pleasure of meeting Michail by accident and not in the best possible place: an hospital in Jubail.  We could appreciate his professionality as a doctor as well as enjoy his friendship: knowing Michail, alone, was well worth all the struggles of […]

Last 60 with my 50 – Street Portrait 2

I met Nizam when our compound organized and hosted a local sale from shops located in Jubail. I thought it was a good opportunity to ‘come out’ and shoot, take a picture of a perfect stranger, win the fear of rejection. The big Canon is not helping: its look tends to scare compared to the […]

This is in fact more an exercise to win my shyness with one-on-one photography than a comprehensive collection of portraits of the people we’ve met. Additionally, this is yet another proof of how friendly, open and warm […]
