People.

The other side of traveling.

No monuments, no museums, no gardens or palaces.

To really get to know a country, you have to interact with its people.

Photography always kept my attention and I got my first SRL camera when I was 16 years old.

During my Visual Arts studies at University, I decided to engage myself in a photo project to last for a few years.

So, from 2001 until 2005, my main purpose of traveling was to capture images of people.

I made hundreds of photos of people using my CANON EOS 1 film camera.

On this page I collect some of the best photos I have from Mauritania.

NOTE: These images were made more than 10 years ago using a film camera (not digital). Visit my photo project People of the World.
