On 5th November, 2011 I left again to India, this time not for a documentary project but for a wedding, yes shooting  a real Indian wedding. The experience was amazing, but shooting portraits of people on the street is still the most exciting  photography I take when I am in India.

It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.

London Fashion Week is over after 6 days of catwalks, but fashion is not only the one you see during the runway, people wear clothes every day and they want to show off their look to the crowd.

Here  are some shots taken at Somerset House during London Fashion Week SS 2012. They are bizarre, classic, colorful, serious, and much more… Enjoy!

The French phrase ‘La Belle Epoque’ refers to the pre-war ‘fine period’ typified by extravagant dressing and the height of luxury living for the elite.

At the door Nadia give me a really nice welcome. She is very nice with me, she brings me inside and she orders a drink at the bar, a nice cocktail with a delicate taste of lemon. It sounds to be in the 20’s in America, but I am in East London. Can can dancers, acrobatic performance, Montmarte music, corsets and much more. The room is quite dark, few chandeliers light the bar upstairs, some spotlights light up the acrobats, a nice woman makes face paintings and red curtains on the walls give a touch of glamour to the room. But the modern disco music during the last two hours I think is not really appropriate.

Last Monday I went to shoot the huge parade of Notting Hill Carnival in London. I shot for more than 5 hours. It was a lovely day. Sunshine all day and a lot of fun for the visitors and the performers. Second only to Rio’s Carnival , the Notting Hill Carnival celebrates freedom trough music, movement and masquerade.
More than 1 million visitors watched the thousands of artists perform over the two-day August bank holiday.
Flamboyant costumes, eclectic music and fantastically adorned floats all contributed to the iconic event.
The parade ran for 3.5 miles in London, from Westbourne Park with thousand performers.
