His latest portfolio was taken during a visit to Rajasthan, India, in September 2013. In the Leica Blog Marino explains how important connecting to the people he photographs is for him and his work. His portraits are showing this emphaty and compassion he has for his models. As an observer of his superbly large-format fine art photo prints on a textured matt inkjet paper like Hahnemühle William Turner you do feel to be a part of the peoples lives.
