Mobile Photo Awards: GRAND PRIZE

“Realities you know, stories “around the corner” are often the best source of inspiration for a photographer.
I was in Malawi, in a small village a few kilometers outside the capital city, Lilongwe, where I live. The rainy season was nearly over and the light perfect for a black and white photo.
Annine was playing with her doll made of mud, prepared with great care in details; Vero on the background was looking at me protecting herself with a cotton cloth that “recalled” the same pattern of Annine’s T-shirt. These were the elements that drove me to take pictures.
I stayed with them some time for some more shots.
Later, reading the words of an Italian writer, I noticed they were perfect to tell this shot.”
