In northern Vietnam often moms work in rice fields all day so small
children are entrusted to grandmothers. This one was 90 years old!

I’m a non professional photographer keen on landscape, architecture and travel photography. I have a degree in mechanical engineering. My passion for photography began at my ninth birthday when I received a gift from my grandmother a simple but beautiful Kodak Retinette and then I began experimenting by myself with apertures, shutter speeds and so on. Since then I have continued to take pictures although during the university studies as well as many very challenging work periods had a negative impact on my photographic work. In the last ten years I started to take pictures with some assiduity and I participate with great satisfaction to some trips organized by the Nikon School Travel. At the time I published on the site " Blurb " 31 photographic books of my trips.
