Photograms of a lifetime…

Photograms are the creations of a darkroom technique, without the use of any camera. They are unique prints, like multiple impressions of the shadow of an object. Through photograms, I "see" hibiscuses dancing, wooden air balloons surrounded by flying seeds. There, the smallest objects become great, and I swirl with them as in a dream... To me, they are not just part of my daily life, considering that as photograms they are part of my professional occupation as well as my inner nature. They are the fruit of profound and continuous work, as l have been involved with them for the last 20 years. I have become so identified with them that I am afraid that I have lost any objectivity concerning my work.

I invite you, then, to travel via my book – which is a collection of these works – to their world, to surrender for a while to their dream dimension and the light shed through them…
