My work consist of photographing landscapes during long solo trips in remote desert areas. Taking a long time to travel is essential to revert to a more essential state of mind.
When there i’m facing basic life needs and slowly drift back to our primeval link with Nature, from whom we generated.
I rely rather unconsciously on my vision and emotions while making the necessary choosing process about what to photograph and how; this, along with the use of the large format medium makes the whole process extremely slow and meditative.I noticed through the years that i’m greatly attracted by pureness and simplicity.
