The story behind those portraits is basically a story of creating connection and intimacy.
Since I moved to London I found that the nowadays society doesn’t allow too much to
create real connection if not for the time being. Still meeting a lots of people like can
happen in London or in a big city, found me unprepared to cope with the idea of absence.
It is for that reason that I started to portrait some unknown models, in an experiment to
seek the moment they would allow me to break the first layer of appearances and give me
a piece of their very own. To do so, I used my room as a studio,
always waiting for the moment they would let go
themselves and feel at their ease to express whatever they would allow me to see.
