Smell Too Loud

TIME. SPACE. IDENTITY.

The holy trinity of my artistic pursuit. All my questionings about the meaning of taking a breath right after another one always brought me to those 3 concepts.  Constantly wondering how these things correlate.

The collection “Smell too Loud” very unconsciously unfolded itself  to become  an abstract exploration of these 3 concepts. Practically speaking, time and and space are bound to  the craft of photography. Every time a shutter is pressed time is stop for a moment and the camera records how the light affect that space.  My initial intent with this project was to challenge my own personal relationship  with time and space in photography. To do so, I  photographed a very familiar space: (here a forest that I have photographed many times before) using  longer shutter speeds than the the ones I would usually use to treat this type of subject. Doing so, surprisingly allowed me to record the loud conversation that my body, my vibrations, my frequencies were having with the ones of the light, the trees and the leaves that were. This exploration allowed me to visualize the effect that one has on his space but also his time at any given moment.

The last Two pictures of the collection Luck 7 & Manuel, are there to reflect on the post realization of this fact. Lucky 7 being the representation of  the change, and the metamorphosis that happenned. It is there  to remind us to accept the traits of the past as well as their  re-emergence once change has occurred. Manuel on the other hand is a representation of the invitation we sometimes receive  to explore new universes which coexists in parallel with our own. Universes where the flow is different,  universes that can be closer than we think. Universes that lies within.
