I find statements heavy and limiting, as gravestones, that try to include a person’s life in two sentences, usually the wrong ones. Life is ever-changing, unpredictable, and the only thing that remains the same is change itself. I film out of passion, of need, never knowing what will grab my attention. I am following the feeling of the moment, but all the feelings are deeply connected with my past.
Everything becomes alive and present through light; this is the key to my art. I follow the light more than any subject. The real subject disappears from eyes and what I can see, is its transformation because of the light. It can be a landscape, an old door, an animal, or a person.
As I grow up, my experiences transform my way of looking at life and so my filming changes. I don’t like being categorized, I am not just one thing and I do not remain the same. Looking back at my previews published work, I can recognize the changes that I went through, the needs and the sentiments that I had at that certain moment. Through my books, my photographs, I watch me growing, never repeating the same subject or the same “style” as they say about artists. I am a photographer, I am a writer, I am a film maker, I am a traveler , I am an artist. I am moving from the one to the other, following my inside need for expression, following the different way of understanding the light. My work, is the expression of my soul and it follows its changes.
Everything flows, as Heraclitus says. The light never remains the same, it is a matter of a second to see it, to recognize it and to keep it on a frame, otherwise it is gone. I do not want to confine my work in a statement, I just want to flow with the light and with the changes of my heart, to wherever this will bring me.
