{dissolvings}

Looking at the reflections, the distortions of light that freely penetrates the myriad of convex lenses of rainwater drops on the windshield of my car, I see a reality that transforms into a dreamlike and poetic world.

The distortion of reality and the explosion and the scattering of light and colors spread and materialize and, the streets and some of its passers-by, the buildings, the venacular constructions, the urban landscape as a whole merge, creating, without pity or mercy, the mystery of the life of this city and these people.

My intention in creating these images and the result they induce is pictorial, of construction of a narrative, but it is at the same time emotional, in the hope that these same feelings will sprout in the minds of those who appreciate them.

[affection]

[Affection was washed clothes, food on the table and unity against the storms. Resisting as a family was the greatest proof of goodwill]

[what is photography?]

“Photography is a kind of alembic in which, in its successive transformation chambers (the eye, the camera, the darkroom(*)), the substance is extracted from the flow of images that crosses us every second and gives them meaning and presence. It is an essence of the look, slowly distilled” (Didier Brousse at https://loeildelaphotographie.com/fr/camera-obscura-bernard-descamps-essentiel/)
