I want to tell you a story

Antonio Aiello



A very old italian woman is telling me about her entire life. In this photo she is showing her first holy communion (a very important day for a catholic person).


I'm very honored and happy about being one of the winners of this contest. I think that this photo show a common story, but in the same time you can fell how every personal story can be very important for anyone of us. It reminds me feelings of nostalgy, good and bad events whatever that actually compose our identity. It is the reason why i submitted this photo, and knowing that it was rewarded makes me glad and confirm my idea the primary aim of photography is simply telling stories.
