New shot for my series “Around”, a photo composition around some colored trees in this beautiful autumn in Berlin.
The artwork is printed in limited edition. It is available for sale by contacting me directly or by ordering it on-line on my Fine Art Showroom.
I’m very happy to have been selected as one of the finalists of the Photissima Art Prize Torino 2015 with my shot about the consequences of immigration (click here for more details on the story behind it).
The photo will be exhibited during the connected festival/fair. You’ll find the coordinates here below:
