[Info: The model of social organization that exists around us transfers big pressure to specific social groups like workers, land-workers, immigrants, unemployed and homeless. This situation is more obvious and intense during the period of an economic crisis. The photos of this exhibition portray moments of these people.
Through the expression of each portrait, they elevate a part of their feelings and their psychology. An effort to snap a social fact that for many of us is just an obscure reality.]
