sincerity for a smile and beyond

It is cliche.

I mean, everybody knows it.

Still, it has always been a basic and great rule for building a relationship.

Especially when you work like me; meeting new people, having to photograph and film their life. Not many people are comfortable being exposed, even with early notice.

Sincerity – the idea and attitude where you see other human being as precious and beautiful as the Creator made them be, no matter their skin colour, education background, position and everything valued by the world – brings strangers to smile to each other..and beyond. The woman in the photo even opened her house to me and my family, offered foods and shared stories. Even money can’t buy this invaluable humble experience.
