Simone is another of the teenage participants to my self-portrait workshop. The subject of most of his portraits is his gaze, the power in his eyes. Contemplation of the world from his inner world. Loneliness was also expressed, but through his gaze he deeply connects to others.
In this group picture below, Simone's loving gaze (far right) brings hesitant Olmo (far left) into the picture, so that the picture will express the union of the group.
Even with the black hood, Simone's eyes still look like those of an angel...
Simone is now 18 and dreams of living in Australia, in the immense landscapes where his gaze can travel freely and continue healing others.
