before be a photographer, I was a traveler who loved to turn and look but then struck by ladakh festival and the photos that I could do during these celebrations I started to follow the festivals and ceremonies around the world. I have focused by some years on Africa, the continent that was able to maintain alive the traditions and the ceremonies, from deserts to forests. I started studying photography and photographers and I started to to buy the testing of various camera bodies and lenses all brand canon, at present working my photo projects with very bright lenses, my favorite lens is the wide angle.

priests and pilgrims celebrate fasika in the church Bet Medhame Alem.(easter) lalibela-ethiopia.

Easter is one of the greatest festivals of the Ethiopian people, celebrated after 55 days of fasting.
Devout followers of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church offer daily prayers at the Church and do not eat until 3 PM, except Saturday and Sunday when prayers are conducted early in the morning. Easter always takes place in glorious weather and enormous effort is put into making the occasion memorable.

Gifts are prepared for children and most people are resplendent in their best clothes, usually the dazzling white traditional dress. Everyone spends Easter Eve at the Church praying until 3 am when it is announced that Christ has risen!

This, in dramatic contrast to the brilliant jewel colors of the ceremonial velvets and satins of the priests' robes and sequined velvet umbrellas, make this festival entirely splendid
