Body in Flux

'There is something magical about how photography records Time & Motion'   

I am attracted by the idea of exploring the boundaries of the photographic and the real, to make a visual reflection of the photographic medium,
with the notion of ‘Time and Movement’ I attempt to record light, decompose movement, working with the human body.
The body in motion unfolds a visual narrative of forms created by light.

Therefore my work rather than appeal to a faithful photographic document depicting ‘Reality’ is rather more an allegory.
So attempts to explore and recreate ‘Light, Body and Motion’.
I make of this photographic problem, thought improvisations images that questions the medium. and its behaviour. 
The image flows appears in the latent image of the film, then images becomes a fiction that gathers time.

I feel comfortable working with simple subjects, artists, performers, mimes and dancers; transforming their plays into an frenetic explosion that take place only in the photographic act.
Because the variants of the technique I use, the constant become relative, the results are unpredictable, and the making of the image, an intuitive process I attempt to fallows.

Working with an old  winding camera. Everything takes place in black box. The fugitive nature of the light, colours is captured by the camera,
 long exposures and different optics. So the analogue films become the metaphor of a a black canvas for me.

The panoramic format is the consequence of the process. 
The image unfolds like an old scroll, allowing the eyes to extent, move and relate to the images in different ways,
The image force you to deciphering the action, though the recounting of time.
