Memories from Normandy
June, 6th, 1944 changed the course of a war and of our History. It was on D-Day that the allied troops invaded Normandy for a series of episodes that shaped the world with memories of sadness, braveness, courage and brotherhood. Almost 70 years later, the place still breathes commotion, for the thousands of the daily visitors or for those many veterans who return, usually to say a last goodbye to forests, beaches, borders and foxholes they once called home.In September, 2009, I visited Normandy to produce a series of photos. And I’ve never produced anything with such emotion and passion. It was the experience of a lifetime.
