Street portrait artist, Samuel Cueto has concentrated his work on the soial outcast, the invisible who live far from city centers. Originally from the working-class area of this 'forgotten' France, the photographer logically pays tribute to his fellows, of whom no one seems to care anymore. Samuel Cueto reflects himself through portraits he takes of people with apparently chaotic journeys: damaged but authentic beings, who exert a magnetic beauty on the spectator. While many photographers have tried to capture the world of ghettos and suburbs without succeeding in going beyond the exoticism of safari photography, Samuel Cueto is not afraid of getting his hands dirty and showing the dirty and grimy backside of our society. The photographer crystallizes with his camera our most current issues: acceptance of the other in his difference, his experience, and his origins. "Queen Lady" is part of his series on Thailand.
