How many times walking down the street, your eyes are crossed with the ones of the other people, who hasn't ever try to understand through a look, to look at the person in front of him and try to understand ...who is he ? what they want to say? Is clear that if you meet someone armed with a photocamera ,our expressions suddenly change, there isn't more complicity between both, we are observed , we try to hide, behind conventional expressions .With this project I try to be not the photographer, but a common person , who walk on the street , there isn't any photocamera in the foreground, but only the eyes. With my photocamera resting on the stomach , I take what 'really happens,not a pose of the moment, but a desire to communicate .With this technique I have tried to highlight the true expression ,you can 'have crossed a simple look with passers.
The people you meet on the street , they have so many stories to tell ,even those small daily happenings, you can feel what they really would like to tell you. With this project ,"Amsterdam soul view" , I'm trying to the true essence of people,from a perspective very close , that comes in contact with something of personal , like to show the expression of the soul.

I made this reportage Ilicínea, a small town situated in the southern region of Minas Gerais, Brazil.
It tells the traditional feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and Saint Benedict Rosary district Ilicínea. Every year in the month of October with the dance of the Congo and Mozambique.
Features African dances, the Congada fuses elements of religious and historical , enduring over time , handed down from generation to generation by the people caiçara which is a drink made with cachaça, sugar, cinnamon and cloves crushed. The festival starts on Friday with the lifting littered with the lady in front of the church, church bells and fireworks.
In addition to having references to the war between Moors and Christians, the event shows the lack of understanding between the two groups who wish to honor St. Benedict. Ambassadors Moors and Pagans with their Congos, declares war on Christian king and you its great .
The dance is marked by the rhythms of marimba and drums, and the beauty of the dances, performed with virtuosity of congueiros , showing skill with swords and verses in praise of the king and spoke before the saint.
The narrative full of lyricism in the words and melodies, it sounds like a prayer, praise and sometimes as a lament also addressed to the Virgin Mary and Jesus.
On Saturday, the gentlemen, led by the king and queen are headed to the church, to try the litter of St. Benedict, the lead through the streets in procession from the center, making a half-moon and singing. They are accompanied by Congos , lower class . Then it starts with the first dance, and a song called Macambá the Congos in preparation for war. The second dance is characterized by intense rhythmic instruments to determine the height of the conflict. On Sunday, the third and final part, the character is identified as the missing son of the king.

In one of my trips, I was in Holland, and I went to Hilversum, a small town near Amsterdam, because it was born the chance to make a reportage at the Mozarthof school, a school which helps in learning, children with Down syndrome  and other pathologies. Starting from the fact that I love kids, but until that moment I  never had interacted with "special"children , and I use this word in a very positive sense  of the  term, because this has been my experience, very special. At  the first moment , I must admit that I felt a sense of compassion, of course, linked to our mental  closures and  clichés, but this experience still had a lot  to give  to me.After visiting the classrooms , I went into the garden , and   was  the time of   break for the  kids, who were playing before returning to classes.  I  just arrived in the garden, when one of the childrens  , suddenly runs to me   , to hug me ,  he clings to my  legs  like  I were one of the family , a person known ... at that time I struggled to hold back the tears , compassion has  suddenly  turned in love, as if that child , with his hug ,was giving  to me all his love , and I have  received this , in full. All my thought patterns were disappeared, and   instantly  a great complicity , was born in me  . I felt an energy that I had never heard before , I felt to be part of him and them. I started playing with them and take some pictures , they didn't saw me as a photographer , a stranger , but only one more friend  to play with and have fun. In the pictures that I made , I tried to tell this feeling  , the game , made up of smiles, full of love, which gave  to me  a lot more than I have given to them , almost like the angels ,who give love without asking anything .

Cachaça is the name given to alcohol of sugar cane, a typically Brazilian drink . It’s name may have originated from the old Iberian language - cachaza - Wine of the poor, drank in Portugal and Spain. In the colonial production of cane sugar , the juice of sugar cane, was boiled and the first foam that dated back to the surface , was given to the animals or discarded, the second was consumed by slaves , the product after fermentation , was called cachaça.
The cachaça is distilled from the juice of sugar cane sugar cane fermented . The fermentation , molasses, also gives rise to rum.
In Brazil is known by multitude of different names, but the most used is Pinga , and boasts a record production in the country, second only to the production of beer .
I have had the pleasure of meeting Don Quioti ,alias The Man of Cachaça , a farmer of 82 years old , that produce sugar cane, strictly organic ! This man lives alone on a farm , just outside of Ilicinea in the state of Minas Gerais. In a big house, surrounded by a huge plot , where he take care of everything, cultivates sugar cane, from which it creates a Cachaça pure and of the highest alcohol content , a natural bomb ! In the time I spent in his house, he proudly showed me all his machines that help him in his work, built with his own hands , from car- tractor in the countryside , made ​​from a frame of a wolksvagen Beetle ( in Brazil fusca ) to clean the coffee machine , which uses the force of the stream, extractor juice of sugar cane , the raw material to produce Rapadura ( unrefined sugar ) and Cachaça , the kitchen where it is cooked and distilled . In this man I saw genius and simplicity , all surrounded by a unique kindness , He opened the doors of his house without even knowing me and in the end we toasted to him, obviously with his Cachaça .

I was in London  and I had the  pleasure to take  part to the one  of  the  biggest event ,the Notting Hill carnival.Every year the streets of West London come alive, with the sounds and smells of Europe’s biggest street festival. Twenty miles of vibrant colourful costumes surround over 40 static sound systems, hundreds of Caribbean food stalls,over 40,000 volunteers and over 1 million Notting Hill carnival revellers.Starting its life as a local festival set up by the West Indian community of the Notting Hill area, it has now become a full-blooded Caribbean carnival, attracting millions of visitors from all over the globe. With many astonishing floats and the sounds of the traditional steel drum bands, scores of massive sound systems plus not forgetting the hundreds of stalls that line the streets of Notting Hill. The Notting Hill Carnival is arguably London’s most exciting annual event.By 1976 the Notting Hill Carnival had developed its distinctive Caribbean feel, and was attracting upwards of 150,000 people. There were, however, still tensions between the police and the predominantly young Caribbean Carnival-goers, which resulted in riots. This was portrayed in a very one-sided way in the press, leading to fears that the Carnival could be cancelled. Thankfully however this didn’t happen, and since then it has gone from strength to strength, blossoming into the celebration of cultural diversity that it is today.  In recent years it has attracted up to 50,000 performers, 38 sound systems and 2.5 million people over the weekend, making it the second largest street carnival in the world after Rio.
