My name is Claudio Franco, I'm an amateur street photographer based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I see myself as an spectator of human life. I like to capture the moment where people is lost in their thoughts. It is my way of reaching out.
The photos I'm posting here are part of a trip to Ireland. They are my questioning of the meaning of life.
"Life has a strange way of continuing. We desire to have sex, get pregnant and have children. Raising them is a mixture of happiness, sadness, anger and worry. But when they grow up and leave, what is left is emptiness. Had the life ended? What is the meaning of life when we fulfill our obligation to give continuity to life?"
