Match 42

The Laos picture is from the book ‘Peuples d’en Haut‘ (ISBN: 2-7467-0536-2), about 3 communities with a strong cultural identity living in the mountains of Laos, Guatemala and Georgia. There is an Italian version called ‘Altri Monti, Altri Mondi’ (ISBN 978-88-95586-11-3) of the book with only the texts I wrote, published by Liaison. It was a journal about what I saw and went through during the production of the story.
