About the project:
Last summer I went to Portugal with my family. My parents wanted to see the sights of Portugal but i was interested in the other side of portugal. I saw a lot of suffering and poorness there and tourists who didn’t care. On the first day in portugal i saw an old man crying, sitting on a street were tourists went shopping. This was the moment when I wanted to capture the poor site of portugal. It occupied me why so many people went past him. So i started to take photos of the portugal how i saw it.
