I am absolutely non interested in photographing human subjects, but I love to portray figures in natural settings. Not only to give a sense of scale to the landscape, but rather to find out, somehow "restore", the right proportions of man on this planet.
I guess in this case a simple picture is worth a thousand words...
Humanity is just an element, a part of nature, of the universe, of this planet.
The question "why are we here" has existed since the mists of time, a question that perhaps shoudn't be placed... I guess don't even exists a "why"... in any case reducing the universe to the limited reach of our minds indeed isn't a logical action.
So I confine myself to contemplate the wonderful reality of... being here! A tiny part of such endless immensities
