Green EyesSometime happens to find some people so interesting and fascinating that is impossible not to dedicate them a burst of photos. This girl is one of the refugees in Leh, Ladakh, northern India, she was sitting in the market with her mother, begging for money. I was far away from her, armed with my zoom when I decided to frame just her face while she was looking away, looking something else than a photographer with a big camera. Guess I got my photo, or not?
Yellow ladyI'm not the first and I will not be the last who will make a portrait of this cuban lady with her cigar and her colored flowers. But it is impossible to pass by and not to stop to take a photo, paying the tip obviously...
Berberian EyesThe woman was working hard in the market. Her eyes were once more talking, and as usual, I preferred to take a candid photo then thank her and pay her little disturbance but it looked like she know what I was doing.
The FishermanIn the seafood market of Essoauira, in morocco, thi fisherman was preparing his capture for the sale. Ok I understand the image can be considered a little "cruel" but the lights and the colors were fantastic, and as usual, I love the candid shots, in particular if they involve "working hands".
The MageWe met this guy in the market of Marrakech, he was about to close his shop. It was te last day of our moroccan adventure and we were still missing some souvenirs, so we stopped by him and we started to buy everything what he was selling. And, due to the fact I never go out without my DSLR, I took some shots of this strange character. Doesn't he looks like the magician of some fantasy movie?
Smile!Reportage from Cuba
Masala ChaiiI've met this old man selling his Masala Chai in his old tea room on wheels, in Amritsar, Punjab. The contrasts of the colors and the whites of the teacups and the his beard, were so vivid that I had to ask him to pose for me.
Hasta el cigarro, siempreMore than a man, this character is a symbol of Cuba, a monument, or a monument man, also known as Havana Superstar. Someone who has been the cover of the National Geographic Traveller. Making a portrait of him and his cigar, posing in front of the world famous Bar, La Bodeguita del Medio has been for me a real honour.
Dont passOne of the armed guards of the Armandir Sahib, the most famous Gurudwara in the world, better known as the golden temple in Amritsar, Punjab India. Who dares to challenge a similar look?
Hard StonesThe hat, the beard, the eyes, the hands of this old stone merchant captured immediatly my attention in the market of Leh, in Ladakh, India. Hi think he's ageless like the mountains he lives, can you guess his age?
Never quit!Reportage from Cuba
RefugeeAn afghan refugee in Ladakh, India. She was the mother of the girl I posted some time ago in the photo "Green Eyes", both were asking for some money in the market. Useless to say that I gave my parts to thank for the photo.
The Old Sikh and the BeardThis man reminds me someone but can't remember who. Can someone help me?

India is full of spiritual characters, this one was meditating, I think, in the garden behind the Golden Temple in Amritsar, in Punjab. Someone said that theres plenty of this kind of people and they aren't so peculiar, but I cannot resist when I see something like that. And you?
After a manifestation around the Zocalo in Mexico City, the proud look in the eyes of this man captured my attention like a magnet. Far from any politics ideology what I've appreciated in this man was the intensity of his look, proud and passionate, he captured my attention till make me ask to capture his portrait.
During the Dalai Lama prayer in Thiksay, in Ladakh, this old woman noted that I was photographing the devotes and the people and she decided to homage me with a splendid smile. Isn't love at first sigth?
A berber snake charmer in Jamal el Fna, Marrakech, Morocco
Wandering through the Fez Medina, in morocco, I've noticed the look of this old man buried in his strange ropes shop captured my attention from the other side of the road, I had to go closer to frame him in his environment. His expression and his beard recall some kind of wise man of some ancient tale.
TucTuc DriverOur TucTuc Driver asked to pose for us for a photo, the result looks interesting to me!
DrinkWherever in the world, water is the most important good that a person can have. Without water, life is not possible; can be withou money, without wealth, without gold, but never without water, nothing worths more than that. This little girl with black pearl eyes, is lucky, she can play with some water, but, in time of climate change, I think it is an high impact image. Or not?
