I am a researcher specialising in the history of silent films. I believe in images. I contemplate them, capture them, collect them, study them. I practice photography as a means to observe reality with more acuity and to know myself better - to give the world a chance to show itself in all its poetry. I do it in a strictly analogue form because I profoundly believe in its materiality. I define myself as an amateur in the best sense of the term. I have an archive of hundreds of negatives at home, just waiting to be "revealed".
