“Hope the journey is a long one.
May there be many summer mornings when,
with what pleasure, what joy,
you come into harbors seen for the first time.”
from “Ithaca”, by Konstantino Kavafis
It could be said that Photography found me late in life. I like to think it found me just at the right moment.
In 2014, at 45, already sensing that this would become a path of personal exploration and discoveries, I began to study Photography.
Gradually, I started to dive deep into this world whose magic continues to captivate me. In particular, the special relationship that Photography has with time and how that influences my perception.
I am interested in the way it activates my gaze, out of a place within myself that is beyond conscience and how it enhances my senses. It shows me what my eye takes longer to see, but my gaze perceives instantly. It walks along with me wherever my curiosity takes me and explains me why I am there.
It is a path that I continue to walk and build, attending to workshops, conferences and courses related to Photography, Art and Philosophy, which have been a source of enrichment and inspiration, awakening new interests and setting new directions.
I am still hoping the journey is a long one. I am still hoping to come into harbors seen for the first time.
