My work revolves around a personal investigation about unpredictability and unexpected as both a philosophical concept and a pragmatic everyday experience. Something that could hold fear and complexity but that is also open to freedom, desires and possibilities. My life become the fuse to visual reflections on the profound and sometimes complex emotional experiences of what could be thought as a void as it is not always controllable. Photography and videos are my tools to research and to express those stories while also a means of self discovery and self awareness.
‘It wasn’t simple: all of a sudden my small, tiny world, was starting to get bigger and bigger. Vast and mysterious like the sea. I was petrified but determined nonetheless. The water of the ocean became an element between the old and the new and the horizon something to look forward without exactly knowing what it would have brought. The stable movement forward of the ship reflected distances that once seemed inconceivable to me. The journey became a discovery of possibility’.
The photographic series comes from a journey through the Atlantic Ocean on a container ship and from an intimate odyssey while traveling as far as possible from home. It is not meant to be a documentation but instead a quest and a personal reflection on the ephemeral but real presence of fear, desires, freedom and unpredictability as something that can eventually lead to some magic.
