Modern Prayers

Serie of documentary portraits done in the Forbidden Palace in Pekin that show tourists while they make a picture as they were praying.​​​​​​​
Suddenly I was surrounded by a large crowd, they all had one thing in common, they were tourists, the crowd was pushing like savages while they smiled with cordiality, all tried to approach, get a good place, be as close as possible to the sacred object . Many of them raised their hands for a brief period of time, their goal: get the picture. It was close to pray, there was something spiritual and intimate in their faces, expressions of sacrifice and ecstasy, sometimes joy, I even want to believe, that by pressing the button, someone had found peace. It is a religion to which anyone can join without much effort, a universal prayer in which anyone can participate, the tourist’s prayer.
