These images are from my ongoing series “Urban Arteries”. With rapid economic development in recent years, Chongqing, the largest municipality in China, has rapidly expanded its urban area, and with it has come an explosion of rail transit. In 10 years, it has increased from 19.15 km to 327.5 km. There are mountains and rivers in the city, and some areas are inaccessible. These rail transit lines extend from the city’s hinterland to the city’s far-flung suburbs to be developed. About 9 years ago, I lived in the new airport district in the north of city and my girlfriend lived in Huxi Town in the west of city. It would take me 3.5 hours to meet her. And now, that time has been reduced to about 2 hours by rail. There were still many villages, towns, farmlands and barren hills nearby where we lived back then. Nowadays, most of them have become part of the city. In the years I’ve lived in Chongqing, it has changed the city and transportation. My series, which captures scenes along rail lines, intends to explore the tremendous impact of urban development on the urban landscape, people’s lives, environment and economic development

Wanna Be Messi
Football is not a privilege, it´s a right. According to the Convention on the Rights-of-the-Child, is a universal language for millions of people around the world regardless of their nationality, language or religion. In Togo there´s a center for children with disabilities that provides specialized attention to improve their quality life. In Africa, children with disabilities have high risk of abuse and neglect. People believe that disabilities are due to a divine punishment. Theses minors (known as “snakes” as they lie on the ground) are considered “demons” and are drowned into the river in rituals “for the serpent to leave”. Meanwhile, for these children at Don Orione Center everything it’s all about football. They all are Messi. Football brings peace for their souls and freedom for their minds… It´s more than a game. Every kid is dreaming of becoming the new star of the ‘beautiful game’ in search of their next goal…
