The Chromosomic Memory and the Art of Change

I have always been fascinated by mysteries of all kinds. Miracles told in legend, myths and today’s religions. Superstitions that live in dreams and waking reveries. They spring from the deep recesses of a collective unconscious mind. The source is primitive and pagan. I fell in love with photography as a means to document my interior world. All the diverse series in these last 35 years belong to one vision, coherent in their diversity. They center around the conceptual axes of time, traces and the duality of memory and forgetfulness.  Should the origin of the object be revealed or should it stay a mystery? I choose to reveal its nature.  Knowlege adds to the multiplicity of appreciation. I strive to find objects in the real world, both man-made and natural to recreate fantastic images collected from my imagination.
