Shabnam is a girl from Agra, who runs with other acid attacked

enterprise they can witness their condition and raise awareness
about this hideous crime. In this portrait Shabnam is with her
daughter.

I'm a hair stylist, I run a salon near Milan in Italy. I love to travel and to take photos. Since 2004 I travel all around the world. My last experience were among Korowai tribe in Papua, and among kyrgyz nomads in Afghanistan. This year I developed the Skin Project, a storytelling of the Skin in India, among Acid Attacked women, albino people, and families hit by so called second poisoning of Bhopal.
