There is a closeness to a village that you cannot find in a big city. A playground during childhood, the village becomes, in adolescence, the source of a certain boredom that prompts one to escape from it, to explore a larger world.
Through this project, I learned to look at my village. I reclaimed the place, I took the time to focus on the people, the moments, those that make this village exist and that give me the feeling of never having left when I return home.
