Street Stories A photography project by Andrea Torrei

– Shot while exploring cultures and countries, Italian photographer Andrea Torrei invites us on a colourful journey, from the shores of the Ghanaian gold coast to the streets of La Habana.

Street Stories is a selection of photographs made in the last four years in different countries, a step into the immense diversity that exists between cultures and the common threads that unite them, far away from each other yet so close.

Each image captures a moment in time that best evokes and expresses the local culture within its traditions and social dynamics. Colors play a significant role adding an extra dimension but the main focus of the body of work is people and their stories.

Whether in public or in private spaces, the pictures are all candid, the pure reaction to the unpredictable unfolding of daily life. – Andrea Torrei
