In the digital era we live in, we ingest daily such a massive amount of images, that we have become distracted viewers.
We sweep and scroll constantly on our devices to see what's next and we struggle to be present in the moment.
My work aims to regain this lost presence. I guess I miss the analogue èpoque.
I capture relevant details from my surroundings to synthetize the experience of presence in one photograph and I basically do what film maker would do through a short movie.
Through my multilayered analogue compositions - that at a first glance might look like "wrong photographs" - I try to arrest the viewer and invite her/him to slow down, look deeper and deeper, reflect and reach a contemplative state.
These images are analogue multiple exposures, which means that a portion of film has been used twice to capture two images instead of one. Everything happens in camera and the end result is revealed only when the film gets developed. There is no Photoshop or digital manipulation involved.
