I use photography to create human landscapes where events just happened or are about to occur and yet we are not certain about the moment we arrive as observers.
I’m interested in taking the image from its original moment to bring it to an unexpected mood. Color is important; it helps induce the emotional tone of an image. Color also helps create decontextualization on an image.
I work to engage the viewer. My aim is to unleashed dynamics that bring ambiguity and uncertainty to our social scripts.
I often work with dancers and musicians. There’s an aura of energy and time precision to them, to their movement, their stillness, their sound and quietness. I work to capture the moments in between, the intuitions, sensualities, premonitions, psyches, anxieties.. the blur: the place with less certainty.
