RUBEN / Mattia Balsamini. A few weeks ago on a train heading home I met Ruben, at that time a total stranger. I continued to stare at him all the way. He got off before I could find the opportunity to ask if I could photograph him. So I asked his girlfriend, who got off with me in Venice - looking at me skeptically. I never thought that she would forward my request.
She unexpectedly did.
And we finally met.
