The photographer himself had said with emotion: “ For me, the photographed girls’ generosity is meant profound, I must let these photos show amazing charm and broad mindedness, which is a kind of the soul that stems from nature worship, I think.” It depends on the spiritual distance to measure the wealth of the world. Love and friendship, nothing is more important than them.
