2005 Shady (personal)

Shady is a story started in 2005, to experiment with the photographic medium in a simple and modest way, by playing with various basic elements such as water, fire, earth. An attempt to create some home-made special effects in order to confuse the viewer about what they were looking at. The series is often displayed as a collection of random objects and odd scenes placed alongside each other. There are no apparent logical links but the cumulative effect is oddly compelling” (Cutting Edge article, British journal of photography, 2006) Shady is an ongoing series which mutates, evolves and enriches itself over the years.
