About a month ago I was invited to take part in a group exhibition with the aim of realizing a "Crib".
I don’t know what to answer and almost reject the invitation, I don’t know which of my photos may be appropriate in that context and why. Then I think about it and accept it.
Initially I decided to give the photo of a newborn migrant from my project "Humanity Without Borders", thinking that it was charged with force in the role of the newborn Jesus. But he was politely refused because an artist had already given a work that occupied that place. Within doubt again, I almost decide to let it go. Then I decide to give this one.
Why the portrait of this migrant man? Why in a crib?
This man has crossed earth and sea on a desperate journey guided only by the light of hope, always preserving his dignity as a man.
This man is a Wise Man in this Crib.
