I positioned myself in the wide doorway leading into the hall where food was being served to the open centre’s residents, composed the image I had in mind, keeping an eye on the migrant sitting down eating his meal, and waited for someone to walk by in front of my camera. Doing this is sometimes tricky as most people tend to stop in their tracks when you see you’re about to take a picture, thinking they’d be getting in your way by crossing in front of you. So I normally slightly lower my camera as a signal to them to carry on, then quickly lift it again and shoot as they’re crossing.

This is such a great shot!!
This way you can immediately understand the wise messages of
the unconscious mind, which always have a protective character.
Not because you really are bad and wrong, but because that’s the nature of shame.
After understanding everything that provokes all your fears,
after correcting all your mistakes and misconceptions about the world where you are and the people who are around you, and after seeing
that you have many capacities that you were not using but
that can help you achieve new goals, you’ll feel safe and confident,
instead of living tortured by social phobia.
