Today is the world sight day, chosen by the W.H.O. to rise awareness on those among us who are visually impaired. I have worked on the theme of permanent and avoidable blindness for about seven years with the contribution of Ngo C.B.M. in 17 countries spread over four continents. The fruit of his work has been a book published on 2010 titled Blanco , a work that tells us about this existential condition. "Sometimes I have the awareness that those who are blind have a capacity to understand and" see "much more intensevely than those we think they see and do not see."
I have always always avoided so-called historical events as a photojournalist, I feel more comfortable with much more time than I can to reflect on the real consequences of such events. But I remember that I was impelled to take the first available flight to New York as soon as the border was reopened. The one who will always remember my memory is the feeling of being immersed in a wadding universe. Everything was silence of wonder and sorrow. 9/11/2001
