2007 - 63° anniversario dello sbarco

This image was taken in 2007, when I was visiting Normandy for the fourth time in my life. The place is called "Utah Beach" and it's one of the beach of D-DAY landing. Every year, on June, there is the commemoration of D-DAY, and local people dressed up to give a better representation of those days. For two years I went to Normandy to do a reportage of the places where the battle was taken....I took pictures of ruins, guns, veterans, beaches, celebrations. I have exposed this pictures in some exhibitions, and some pictures were published in a book. All those places make me feel sad and nostalgic, especially in this picture I think the look of the girl reflects well the concept of nostalgia

    great capture. the mood, the face, the soldier, the wind, the beach. echoing memories of a distant yet well remembered past.
