The sound of silence. One of the themes that I constantly photograph is the relation of the urban, capturing the movement, flows both of the city and of the people who compose it at a specific time of action in relation to the displacement between both motives. I wanted something different, to show the way I see the city, that’s why I continued to study independently. When I started with photography I always liked the noise and the movement, something similar to a dream. I have hearing problems and I wanted to reflect this in my photographs, the speed was perfect to demonstrate the noise in a conversation. It is difficult to try to listen to a person in the city.
I represent the noise with the blur in the image and the focus with what I can hear. One of the songs that inspired me for all this was “The sound of silence” by Disturb.
