“I construct each image with the awareness of the photographic act, but I cannot write with light without shadow. It is the ink of the visions that punctuate the wanderings guided by the sun. It is she who sculpts the spaces of the medinas and palm groves, the courtyards of mosques and the reflections of the canals. It is always the shadow that cuts, at the equinox or solstice, the rays carved in the stone of the temple of Abu Simbel or loaded with incense in the abbey of Ganagobie. And draws the flames of the candles that vibrate in the Sevillian naves inhabited during Holy Week. I learned framing by observing painting, and I completed my architectural studies in order to be a scenographer. I graduated with a study on the role of Baroque architects in the theater, and on the effects of perspective in illusory sets. This work made me understand the difference between natural compositions and symbolic staging. The images to which I remain attached are the most “mysterious”. They aim to underline, in our era where the virtual reigns, the border between the possible and the artifice, the visible and the invisible.”
