Who am I?

I have photographed the things I felt around me and inside me since I was 13 years old, searching for my identity. Reality is overrated and means so many beautiful and contradictory things. So I keep asking myself the same questions, knowing that there is more hidden than visible. Always surprised by the unpredictable. For me, photography is a way to approach transcendence.

What is the story?. Myself. I photograph instants that make me dizzy. And I feed on them. The camera is only the vehicle to tell what is happening around me. It means an approach to others, perhaps to overcome the limits of my loneliness, of my fears. I observe the people wandering the streets. I look for myself among them and within myself. I need to feel the essence, the human, to feel how I am. Will I be able to find myself among people?. Who am I?. Who are we?. Where is the essence?. What distance separates us from each other?. Each photograph functions as a self-portrait, because it shows my passage through the world. It forces me to position myself. To go beyond the limits of my memories. It allows me to know and to know myself.
