About the images:
Unveiled (series) > “Most often, sometimes marked by confusion and uncertainty, the reaction of the human body under the incidence of excessive light leads to new interpretive stances. The images show an intermediate state, somewhere beyond the world of dreams where the light tries to disintegrate the main character, revealing the most intimate parts of his soul. The images were taken in 2017 in manual mode on medium format film cameras and are part of a bigger project named “Dreams”. Images from “Unveiled” series: “Call my name”, “Hanged dreams”, “Tear me apart”, “Unveiled” and “Blindness”.” Whisper me your wish (series) > “The series “Whisper me your wish” images, from “Lust” project, is oriented towards Psychoanalysis follow a deep line in understanding human anxieties, hopes or desires. Somewhere beyond the formal representation the character hides, beneath the excessive film granulation, a fantastic world of inner beauty revealed by the author through an extremely sensitive approach. The images presented from Lust series: “Whisper me your wish”, “Hold Me Tight”, “Touch me softly”, “Hold me, kiss me, kill me”.” I count the grains of sand… > “I count the grains of sand on the beach and measure the sea; I understand the speech of the dumb and hear the voiceless. The smell has come to my sense of a hard shelled tortoise boiling and bubbling with a lamb’s flesh in a bronze pot: the cauldron underneath it is of bronze, and bronze is the lid.” (oracle to Croesus of Lydia in 560BC, “The history of Herodotus — Volume 1 by Herodotus”)” Succubus > “A succubus is a Lilin-demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore, traced back to medieval legend, that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress. A succubus may take a form of a beautiful young girl but closer inspection may reveal deformities of her body, such as bird-like claws or serpentine tails. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.”
