“Shouts stories” is a work made by the wet collodion process. The shout is part of these things that the whole world has in common. We do it from the day owe are born. Wherever we come from, when somebody shouts, out of joy, of fear or of irritation no need to speak the local language to understand. The act of shouting is something very strong, powerful. It comes from a need, an urge, an emotion that words can’t convey. Through these portraits, the photographer tries to catch a bit of this everything, of this strength.
