Photography is so much more than just capturing a detail, a face, a gesture or an object.
Framing a designed reality can be interpreted as producing a fantasy, something that doesn’t exist. However, fantasy is embedded in the everyday reality of our lives. We all have the potential to see beauty in the smallest things and thus give birth to a whole new world through our eyes. Beauty is out there, somewhere, bathed by a sea of light and shadow, just waiting to be seen.
However, every eye is different. Every eye has an history, past experiences and memories, different ways of interpreting the world, of seeing light and shadow, shape and color. Every eye tells a tale.
And this is my tale of Leila, the beautiful winemaker.
