Intergalático, is to some extent a visually based literary essay. The journey is defined by a multitudinous structure: we can find collages, evidence, stories, effects, annulment, even sharpness and illustrations, rereading and small traces. These images are alternated in an order that requires immediate participation of the reader: from the beginning there is the invitation for a game, an outcome, a challenge between what is seen and what remains. The strategy, in this case, articulated spontaneously by the photographer, always points to the random, the disorder, the immediacy of an alleged previous life - something that is divided between land, space, and the virtual universe, a journey that was supposed to go towards the past, but also towards the future, a desire that is not totally revealed, but that is always there.
