To fly is the opposite of traveling: you cross a gap in space, you vanish into the void, you accept not being in a place for a duration that is itself a kind of void in time; then you reappear, in a place and in a moment with no relation to the where and when in which you vanished. (Italo Calvino, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler)
Photography is my everlasting fight against disappearance. It serves as evidence,
as a recourse and reminder; a trace of the past, a chemical inscription of brief moments.
This series is about attempting to show the world in a way that recognizes the fragility of my constructions; that accepts, and perhaps welcomes, the discovery of a torn veneer.
My subjects accept the failure of order; they sense their own inability to control the world and yet, they keep trying. Pictures inside the publications are about love, loss, and the endless desire to keep. The book form postulates an order, a viewing direction, combinations and thus associations. But moslty it is all about what I believed to see.
