LAUNCH • Saturday 15h September • 3 pm to 5 pm
Over the years, I have been focusing on different techniques and methods of producing photographic images. By using old cameras, film and traditional chemistry, I developed a relationship with my work that goes beyond the making of an image as the expression of a concept or an idea.
My work is also an expression of my passion for the physicality of the work and the presence that it acquires over time. This exhibition is meant to showcase the diversity of work that I have been making over six years.
