The photographer is fascinated by the interaction and the myriads of juxtapositions between urban objects and inhabitants.
He creates numerous frames within busy city locations, commercial buildings and people fleeing incessantly "crime" scenes.
And then for a moment, he looks down and all the tension of the obstinate photographic endeavour, disappears on the sandy backdrop of a minimal yet disturbing composition.
These are the moments when the photographer "takes a subject beyond just being a picture of something and let it float as an invention" as S.Wagstaff would have said.
For a moment I was sure that the concrete blocks were beach cabins and the mutilated mannequin just a desperate nudist! Weren't you?
The subtle forgery of photography!
