Photography has been my hobby since I was a teenager. I first took pictures with a traditional camera, then I stopped for a few years, and then I bought a digital camera, which got me back to my initial passion but with a different approach and different possibilities.
My interest soon focused on apparently worthless things, things that are around us but which we tend not to look at as they seem trivial, outdated or discarded. My eyes are drawn to these objects or places on the margins of our daily experience because, to me, they feel like points of high intensity. A form of tension is deeply at work between what man has created and the opposing action of time, overgrowing nature or oblivion that alter, reshape and somehow re-create this man-made environment.
The interplay between past and present, creation and decay, production and desertion, presence and effacement, is what makes these small things live a highly saturated life—and this is what makes them worthy of photographic attention.
