Aeolian Portraits

Aeolian Portraits – Personaggi di Panarea

I have been photographing the people of the island of Panarea for over 30 years. It started as a bit of fun, now it has become a real project which I know I will never stop doing. 

The faces of the Aeolian Islanders have the sea, Sicily, the sun, the wind and time itself etched into their features, and for this reason they are amongst the most wonderful subjects you could ever hope to photograph.
