I am photographing my dreams.
SUPERNOVA PLAYROOM – My Supernova Playroom portraits are a projection of my inner voice. What may seem abstract to the viewer is to me a language rooted in symbolism and allegory. I am photographing my dreams. I use a medium format lenses from 1930’s and 40’s to create portraits in which a body becomes the painted canvas. The results are electrifying.
The results are electrifying.
I was swimming in dangerous but beautiful waters. A fish passed by, I’ve never seen a
fish like that before. It could swallow my whole body if only it opened its mouth full of teeth. I
looked ahead of me, I saw mountains on the horizon, and the colors and their reflection in the
water were breathtaking. I wanted to take a picture when you called.
