The way we relate to our reality: only images and imagination.

I am searching for absence and imagination. In the proposed work “invisibles” I combine images that deal with physical, narrative or human absence. “Moments I’ve failed to cap¬ture” is the main motivation in this body of work. I tried to create different ways of using photography as a commemoration system in reconstructing moments of my own life. I add abstract forms to landscapes and everyday life scenes, trying to recreate stories by highlighting different spots in the image. I’m interested in the interaction of these elements and how they start to relate to each other. I use big white canvases, pro¬jection displays that ask for visibility and absence.

In another experiment I deled with the transformation of the visual image in a somehow “imaginary” display. Through autobiographic texts I explore image production on mo¬ments, where I had no camera with me.

With this body of work I focuse on the question of reality and imagination of the photo¬graphic image.
