Fratini's site segnidalcielo
("sign from heaven", poorly translated) is a place for all kind of ufology
related subjects. Because he posts many videos and pictures of others, it doesn't seem plausible to assume the pictures are his. Apart from that, you
can see in the screenshot of the exif extracting program that these were family photos, not photos of a researcher.
Furthermore, while not directly deserving the stamp of 'hoaxer', Fratini doesn't seem to apply much scrutiny to the kind of articles he posts.
Articles are mainly copied from different sources, without much input from himself. It also seems like Jaime Maussan can post his own articles there
(other articles have a link to the source, this one just a 'Courtesy of Joseph Garofalo and Jaime Maussan').
Most importantly, if it wasn't Fratini who took the pictures, then it doesn't matter how honest he is; for a hoaxer to be successful, he just needs
to pass the pictures on to one honest and gullible person, who can subsequently present it as truth without being hindered by the fact that it is
anything but. I understand they would want to protect the family's privacy, but they could at least described how they got hold of the photos.
About not releasing the full photo; it doesn't seem like the right thing to do. If there truly is something as special as a beam of light coming from
an ancient temple going on, would you really care about personal gain? And even if so - would you not want to convince the public by at least
providing a full-res portion of the beam of light? Maybe I'm being too demanding here, but that's what I would do.
