The human eye is not capable of taking in an objective reality. It does not see things as they are, for it is subject to the will of a thinking being and to that being's emotional state.
For this reason, every human view of the world is only partial and is in some way skewed.
I utilize photography in an effort to go beyond, or at least involve the "deluded" viewer in an attempt to arrive at a single reality. It is a sort of game of comparison with a truth which is not necessarily deeper, but certainly "other." There is always something which escapes one's view and our sense of certainty decreases the longer we fix our gaze; we are amazed as an almost entire parallel world becomes manifest. The choice is ours whether to consider it imaginary, or, on the contrary, to hold it as all the more real.
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”. - Anais Nin
Mine is a personal search and I do not pretend to recount
anything beyond that which I observe. In fact, many
of my shots are individual and do not easily lend themselves to
grouping or forming an ordered portfolio.
I could say that my energy reaches its apex and exhausts itself at the
moment the shot is taken. All that follows is circumstantial and i
realize that my eye has been an instrument and nothing more.
Photography has been and is, for me, a potent antidepressant. If I am
able to share, to transmit something as well, for this, I am content!
To augment the curative, anti-melancholic effect of photography, i
shoot a great deal in analogue, convinced that the concentration
involved in each shot is considerably intensified with respect to
that required in the practical immediacy of digital photography.
I believe that as long as I succeed in shooting to satisfy a
personal need, and not to please others, I will be able to achieve
something worthy of note. But the boundry between the two can be
mercurial and the "easy" shot often lies in wait.
