PAYSAGES INFINIS (Infinite Landscapes)   

It's a simple gesture.
You take a sheet and divide it in two by a line.
Slowly a lanscape begins to show. Earth-heaven, sea-earth, sea-heaven. It's the fundamntal idea of my work. Landscapes of the interior world. I have worked with the mode of photogaphy without using a photographic media. Acids, light, sensitive paper and by means of a square window  I have found out the landsape.
A sheet, equitably divided in two.
A lighter part and a darker part. The aim is on the line of separation-unification between the two parts. A living zone. This is the point where you meet. Man-woman, day-night, light-shaddow. Line of balance and harmony, but also of doubt and choice. a non-point of heaven, sea and the earth.
A zone where all is and nothing is.
