Portraits Reports

"Women have approached me and tell their stories. It's been like that for years, I think I'm someone who can be trusted. Who will listen to those intimate and sometimes painful stories that they've never told anyone. Listen without judging. Only someone to listen to. Paint these stories is doing something with this pain. A kind of healing process, an end point." - Panmela Castro about the Portrait Reports series Portraits Reports
