Living & working place
I work through a rather philosophical and slow process to construct my images. The spark of an idea leads to a long and laborious period of contemplation and reasoning, which is often filled with doubt.
In this arduous and contradictory journey of an emptiness photography like poetry unveils by hiding and suggests by not revealing. On the one hand, it traces out a path and on the other underlines the impossible.
My work deals with existential issues such as vulnerability, the transience of life, and the body as a metaphor for the solitary, metaphysical quest of the soul. Stretching the limits of the physical body, I try to revise the confines of perception and create portraits that are a reflection of the mystery of the human condition Statement of the project
A LEAP INTO THE SHADOWS
The project “A leap into the Shadows” seeks to step into and focus on two apparently different and contradictory realities: the end and the beginning of life.
By comparing the elderly and young people, the project attempts to underline the anguishand uncertainty that these two groups face, in diverse parts of the world and in different socio-economic situations, with regards to their respective destinies. On the one hand, the elderly scrutinize the subtle confines between life and death, both accepting the end of a cycle and battling the idea that they might lack the time to start fresh. On the other hand, young people grapple with their desire to succeed in a reality predominated by insecurity, finding themselves powerless in the face of a foggy future.
