022/100 Antonio


I knew that I had to get Antonio to take part in my 100 Strangers Project as soon as I laid eyes on him. This wasn’t as easy as I had hoped. I met him in the Italian mountain village of Idro, he didn’t speak a word of english and my italian extends as far as ciao and prego! Anyway, with a bit of sign language he agreed to have his portrait taken, it’s not the best shot I’ve ever taken, but it is difficult to get someone to move out of the harsh midday sunlight when you only have two words at your disposal!
