Hang in there
I like to find harmony in the ordinary. With photography I try to build compositions and relationships between photographs that ask questions about property and the ideia of something belonging to someone.
The series I created for this workshop illustrates situations of tension and attachment. We see things and situations right at the point of breaking or detaching. These are placed next to others that seem to already have passed that state and are now in a state of rest. The series also has a circular characteristics that can be read as a metaphor for the cycle of life and death.
