“Hope the journey is a long one. 
May there be many summer mornings when, 
with what pleasure, what joy, 
you come into harbors seen for the first time.”
from “Ithaca”, by Konstantino Kavafis

 

It could be said that Photography found me late in life. I like to think it found me just at the right moment.
In 2014, already intuiting that this would become a path of personal exploration and discoveries, I began to study Photography.
Gradually, I started to dive deep into this world whose magic continues to captivate me. In particular, the special relationship that Photography has with time and how that influences my perception.
I am interested in the way it activates my gaze, out of a place within myself that is beyond consciousness and how it enhances my senses. It shows me what my eyes take longer to see, but my gaze perceives instantly. It walks along with me wherever my curiosity takes me and explains why I am there.
I am still hoping this journey is a long one. I am still hoping to come into harbors seen for the first time.
