What fascinates me about photography is that you can either tell a story
or make the viewer imagine one. Usually, I love to document real stories and try
to show my point of view about what I see in their realities and what I want to
communicate from them. But in this case, I wanted to do exactly the opposite. I
wanted to invoke stories and feelings out of images that I created myself,
unreal and nostalgic. Each photograph is composed with things that represent
something for me at a specific stage of my life.
I want to document through pictures
what I feel when a very intense and beautiful moment in my life vanishes with
the pass of time and gets replaced by nostalgia and melancholy.
impossible to embrace that moment, sensation or feeling the exact same way you
did the first time. So, they stay in the back of your mind, like beautiful
blurry pieces that get together and help you run away from routine and
meaningless daily life activities.
I keep them there to believe that when the
tedious moments of everyday life hit again they are worth it, because you may
get beautiful moments again, it’s a way to remind, but more important to
have hope for better moments.
