Archipelago (2004-2014)

My large-format images honor the tradition of tableau photography while addressing a timely topic: relationships in contemporary society. I focus on the social constructions that define how people relate to each other and how their identity is shaped by the surrounding world. Through photographic composition, I address the tension between our internal and external lives, and between reality and fiction.

Using silence as a platform, Archipelago (2004-2014), explores how people across generations, genders and countries, are connected and disconnected. The photographs operate as a collection of “islands,” separated by the loneliness of each one and linked by the intimate bond of belonging to the same world. The relationship between the people defines itself through the setting that conversely becomes a psychological extension of the characters.
