I am Massimo, an Italian traveler and photographer, author of this site where you will find some of my shots made during my travels all over the world. From an early age I saw in the magazines images of places and people in distant countries dreaming of being able to travel the world to get to know those places and meet the people who lived there. When I finally got to travel, I started to photograph what amazed me and the people I knew to be able to keep a clearer memory of it. That's how I began to love photography, the same that inspired me to travel.

The term Naga is used describe groups of tribesmen of Indian and Chinese descent that live in the hill country along the border of far eastern India and northwestern Burma. Nagas are former head hunters. In World War II, they were recruited by the British to fight the Japanese.
The Chin are of Sino-Tibetan origin and inhabit a mountain chain which roughly covers western Burma through to Mizoram in north-east India (where they are related to the Mizos, Kuki and others) and small parts of Bangladesh.
