About the Project: Absence

The scene of my photos is always deserted, immersed in silence, there is rarely more than one human figure, if there is more than one, a dramatic extraneousness and lack of communication between the subjects seems to emerge. My photographic subjects seem extraneous to the environment in which they are immersed. I like to photograph silence. My characters are wrapped in their desperate thoughts, with their eyes lost in the void, transmitting solitude, expectation, inaccessibility. A psychoanalytic dimension. The images have bright colors but do not transmit vivacity, the spaces are real but in them, there is something metaphysical that communicates to the viewer a strong sense of uneasiness. “I do not photograph what I see, but what I feel”.
