People in my photographs

Why is there no-one in your photos?

I love human's face, and would have loved photographing it amply, because it is a central matter. Unfortunately, some people just wait for an opportunity to appropriate what the others create - and today the law allows them to demand money upon an image of themselves, which they have neither made nor designed, and which they freely present to anyone. I refuse to lose my life in absurd trials, so I gave up photographing humans with the aim of publishing their photographs - then, if there are no humans in my photos, it is not at random. I too do what I want.
