My activities, all related to my practice as an artist, are multi-faceted. If I am a photographer, I'm also a social anthropologist and my artwork is a merging of the two disciplines, photography and anthropology. I’m interested in the politics of the construction of the photographed subject and in the current debate regarding the developing new nature of the human eye as another digital device and reciprocally.
My academic research and field study certainly influences or inspires some of the currents in my research as an artist, but in a most constructive way, allowing to orient the conceptual bases of my art, rather than becoming the first degree subject or content. Indeed, both my academic and artistic research have led her to explore notions of personal and human identity. As an artist, I am primarily a photographer, though my practice has from time to time evolved towards both performative or installation-based work. Although my art may deal with the human figure or presence, it is idea and/or concept based, and maintains considerable rigor in the exercise of the control over the authenticity of the work in the face of the possible sentimentality that photography so easily harbors.
My focus is to bring notions of the individual's identity informed by personal experience of diverse kinds (such as illness and death, geography and origins, desire and ambition...) but presented always with considerable detachment and an analytic eye, affording a balance between allaying the dangers of poetry and aesthetics, while welcoming imagery for what it is.
