“This series is part of a long-term travel and street photographic narrative about the UK, mainly taken in London, that I started in 2005. On this occasion, I aimed to capture some magic as a friendly reminder to people that we must see the world through our prism. Life and magic are there; we only need to open our eyes. In recent years, I have parked my ego far from my heart to focus on sensing the creation process. My priorities have been living, caring for myself, and enjoying life. These new tales are reflections of this sweet moment in my life, and I will do my best to make it last a long, long, long time. I will not enumerate these series anymore; I have realized all the tales belong to the same project: Tales of a City. While I was trying to identify the British identity, what I found was my voice.”
