- If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. - From "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll.
Our vision of the normal, of the "ordinary", is founded on our certitudes, on the world we see and we know. But do we really look at everything is around us? Like Alice, I escape from a known world to find refuge in a dimension of nonsense, where the garbage becomes a wave of dust, where a cat's fur becomes a dreamy landscape. A world populated by incredible and static creatures; landscapes, colors and shapes. Everything is new but at the same time familiar.
Big and small are reversed and reflect themselves. A new dimension in which stay small, trying to not being overwhelmed by the vastness of the outside world.
I find this amazing world of chaos with no criteria; I don't touch anything, I don't create set, I don't arrange lights. Just take the camera, look and shoot. I don't look to make perfect images; instead I want to be seduced by the surreal atmospheres that already exist in the real world. These atmospheres are enhanced by the use of macro lenses that turn everything inside out and upside down once again.
