In the evolution of the work, I deconstruct and reconstruct my perception of the world through urban architecture, both in its material and human aspects. I find in architecture the synthesis of a search: the icon of a culture and, depending on the case, of innovation or social decadence. The architecture of life as an everyday object is therefore the key to the turns of my work. My photography is related to the oneiric, it induces us to dream of the territories and spaces we inhabit. The constructions are probed like the hidden cavities of a body, from which an intimate world emerges: the interior landscape of the buildings. I am interested in the spectral in the solid, the void in the full, the abstract that hides in the concrete. By leaving out any appearance of the human figure, the morphology of the architectural space itself is exposed. That is certainly the emphasis I find on the routes, passageways, and the proliferation of stairs: mere instruments to destabilize spaces and unleash the imagination.
