Practice

 

My works explore the interaction between the human being and the surrounding environment, using photography as a sort of ever-changing experiment, searching for something elusive in the gap between reality and its representation. 

Combining pictorial processes with printmaking, and video installations I focus on the vulnerability and the ambiguity of the images questioning the mechanisms of reproduction and transmission of vision created by the photographic medium.
