My photography is an attempt to discern unconscious material irrupting in the visual world. Inspired by old stories and myths, I’m looking for hidden-in-plain-sight characters and patterns. In analytical terms, inviting images in the camera chamber is for me a work of active imagination. Once there, the delineation between object and subject blurs: are images collected, mediated or psychologically projected by the photographer? The encounter with the Other, the Unexpected, becomes a focal point and an invitation to enter uncharted territories.

[ Where? ]
Jean Gebser Society Symposium, October 10-13, Asilomar Conference Center, California
Inspired by the wine concept of Terroir, and my experience moving from Europe to the New World, I am presenting a series of images related to the sense of place. This exhibition explores the emotional and atemporal dimension stemming from a location, the (re)connection with nature and with others.
