This is not a love song

This is an unwritten love letter to all the people who were able to open their hearts and share some very important moments of their existence. It is a series peppered with personal metaphors.

I don’t expect people to understand it in a purely cerebral fashion. My objective is to awake a sensation common to all of us, the shared emotional core of experience that we feel before we rationalise and convert it into a private precinct. 

I followed this thread to enlighten my soul after I lost too many people I loved. It is full of pain and joy, alongside all the tiny details that fuel my life. I am creating these images as stories based on memories of ephemeral moments of sweetness, passion and pain, by using body language as an instrument of expression. 

It is the first time I got myself “naked” and got over my fear of losing control of the image. This is an attempt to speak from my guts.

The aesthetic choices for this series rely on the necessity of getting rid of all the merely polite sympathy contained in the expression “I’m sorry about your loss”, that I heard far too many times. 

I expect people to come closer to what they see and feel, instead of just walking by.
