About

Statement

 

My research develops through the stratification of elements drawn from history and literature, social and cultural symbols evoking a sense of unreality, suspended between mystery and marginality.

Through photography and the installation, I return to the image the suggestions and the experiences lived, telling of primarily nocturnal worlds that generate a sort of temporal suspension and, at the same time, conceal new forms of truth.
