The power of photography from its inception to the present day is based on taking truth from reality and turning it into an image.
The image has a collective language that every person is able to understand and therefore the image is the language
As a teenager, when I started photographing, I was particularly interested in the connection between the photographer and his Photographed, i was try to find the basis of the common language with the person behind the image.
This picture was taken on Lomé, the capital of the west African country Togo
The protagonists are absorbed in their thoughts with their heads bowed or intent on looking with the absent gaze of those who look but do not see, as if they were imprisoned in their inner world. We are almost facing an aquarium in which motionless and / or unconscious fish swim. Loneliness is almost palpable and silence seems to saturate every space of the environment in a metaphysical suspension. The scene is still, extracted from the present and frozen out of time.
