The series “Tales” is how I present all my travel and street photography work, and my main intention with these photo narratives is to express the Latin message of Carpe Diem. I think it’s related to waking up. “Enjoying life” is essential, and “taking care of ourselves” (eat, move, and rest the best you know) is part of waking up too.
All these ideas work together. Let me share another reflection: when artists discuss censorship and cancellation culture, I always think of Madonna as a role model to follow, with decisions and actions rather than words or moaning. The brave attitude she has shown her whole life inspires me. All this debate about censorship is like the metaphor of the bird inside the cage with the doors completely open—it’s there, fly! So let’s do it; let’s take action rather than complain about it.
If only we all knew the power we have in our hands, it’s on us! We decide. We are free. Individually free, each of us! This metaphor works not just for censorship but for every single thing in life, for every goal that you have, and you may be crazily waiting for authorization from someone, or even worse, from “a system.” Remember, the doors of the cage are completely open; do it! Finally, let me tell you something else I have come up with in my trips. I have seen that, even though we are different, the most important things in life connect us. I have realized most human beings are beautiful souls with so many good things to share with the world (with so much potential!), and in fact, this picture I got from my experiences is quite far from the image I get from the media about the world and its citizens. It makes me question, “Why?” Now, I will give you time to reflect on that. Give it a thought, and get to your conclusions.Enjoy the Tales of Morocco. [Travel Itinerary in Morocco: CASABLANCA. FES.
