GINA SANTI – STATEMENT
I have gained a sense of myself as a photographer. My art is my way to share my passion for world cultures with all those who believe that photography is more than a simple reflection of light on an object: it is an attempt to capture and convey the diversity and beauty in humankind’s varied cultural expressions and environments.
