Claudio Rosano, ‘Untitled’, Museum of African Design (MOAD)

Artist's Statement
My work is always about people. I see my opponent without artificial distortion,
mostly in real light. I want to see everything. My tool of the camera, is never
intrusive, always discreet but very honest. My counterpart has always prior consent
added to the image. The pictures show what I see.
