Great News. My News: one of my pictures made the Editors' pick. Thank you LensCulture
Art Photography Awards 2023 International Jury! My picture "Across the
lines" has been selected to be featured in the online Competition
Gallery. Discover my inspiration in the caption below.
ACROSS THE LINES
A human encounter in a suspended, contemplative space. Is the line to be crossed? Will the first move become ‘a pas de deux’? Or will it be a sliding movement shifting away from each other. Nothing happens. The New Tate, London.
"A wonderfully complex moment happen between the two people in the photograph. I love how they are at an impasse across these lines and on different quadrants. And of course the large, enigmatic and deeply moody (blue) space is a beautiful environment in which this all exists. That blue really forces me to embody the gravity of the moment--all the while knowing that all of this could be an illusion. In other words, for all we know, the two people are unrelated, daydreaming, and have no relationship to each other. But that's the beauty of photography: it only shows us what we think we see."

I chose the title "What a wonderful word" to thank Futura21, an Institute of Research and Development
based in Geneva, Switzerland for their appreciation and description of my
experimental work. The truth is that I did not write any words myself. I focused
on my photographs, on my imaginary and abstract vision of a perfect society. "What a wonderful world".
