During my trip to Kursha Monastery, located in Indian Tibet (Jammu and Kashmir) I met an elderly lady on her way home with a basket full of herbs. In one hand she held a shovel, in the other a Buddhist rosary. I could barely hear the prayers that he whispered with his gaze turned towards the mountains, while a wonderful light was illuminating her during this magical moment.

Tommaso Vecchi was born in Cento on 4 January 1995. He began to approach the world of photography in 2013, when his first action cam was given to him by his parents. Initially he decided to devote himself to the video sector, only later his true passion for photography would be born. In October of the same year he organized his first photographic exhibition entitled "Cara India", created to excite visitors through a collection of his most interested shots. In December 2019 it received its first publication in the photographic magazine "Digital Camera Magazine", followed a few days later.
