For some, photography is inspired by painting. In my research, photography is rooted primarily in language. I let myself be inspired by those daily expressions in our discourse that enrich each language with images. The figurative language may seem obvious, but restaged, its absurd dimension is revealed. Autobiographical interpretation and playful questioning of everyday expressions characterize this body of work. The superposition of photographed elements echoes multiple degrees of viewing these illustrated expressions. Word games become sets of images opening the way to different interpretations. The photographer's vision is not unique. The viewer is invited to translate the image in his or her own language, the misunderstandings may lead to new metaphors. And the game of the absurd continues...
