Breaking the circle
Minors released from prison have no access to reentry programs. Some go back to the streets and try to survive; others receive support from various organisations.
For more than 20 years I have photographed current affairs related to human rights. Some of these stories, such as child labor exploitation or minors in jail, deliver unquestionable evidence of situations that should be abolished or, at the very least, persecuted.
Documental photography is, for me, a life-affirming attitude, a tool that lets me approach situations that captivate me, preoccupy me, and make me want to participate. Moreover, as photographer, I work and delve into subjects that transcend present time, but intrigue me for their experience and expose me to other types of lives.
