This work takes the photograph outside its traditional documentary role and moves it towards abstraction. As we look at the contents of the photograph, our minds produce an imaginary image, free of the three dimensions, and representative of the clash between light and shadow. I aimed at stressing the mental consciousness of the reality of the photograph by reproducing nature using things we don’t usually notice or find in memory.
