Behind my Stories goes beyond a photographer's journey documenting ancient villages and beautiful traditions. It is an introspective journey in which Diego makes us part of it, sharing unique and magical moments in each place he visits. It is time to show that part of life that we have long forgotten, the human being. It is time to explain the stories behind the stories.
