Brief Summary
My work is a search for hidden treasures. I slip off into the dark of abandoned places, hoping to uncover their secrets.
Among the cobwebs and the shy light that streams through broken windows, I search for objects punished by time. My aim is to rescue them from the dust and show their beauty; a beauty as fragile as the silence that surrounds them.
After their years spent in oblivion, I turn them back into the protagonists of their own story - while trying to preserve the last breath of mystery and nostalgia.
