Be the bee body be boom, est west. What I see are fleeting moments that manifest themselves first in my mind and then in the photographs I look for in the street. I’m not trying to document, I’m not interested in that and I’m not objective. I think I kind of reject what is real and I pursue physical evidence that manifests my perception. Everything happens inside me, I talk to myself. I meet people who embody my idea of fleetingness. Probably nothing enchanting, rather indefinite and deep, like a denied look. Often the existence of something unusual is rejected, but it thrives in the human imagination. Things insinuate themselves from other possible worlds, they fill us with cold splashes and our understanding adapts to receive them. I am constantly waiting for this splash that awakens me because I perceive reality as less important than imagination, too definite and definitive. A sort of counterpoint, a whisper overwhelmed by the main voice, a background buzz I try to connect with.
Is this description of Be the bee body be boom, Est-West, too serious?
Let me be brief: more than anything else I love leaving small footprints, I enjoy getting snaps of life and death, these are the photographs.
