Statement

The eye. To see, to be seen. To be seen and to see.

 

In my childhood I had the fear of being seen or stared at by others.

 

Instead of covering my face with my hands I covered it with a camera. Then I’d escape from the sight where it was possible, under the bed, the editing room or with a mask.

 

Irrational fears made me a photographer and video editor. I sublimated the repressed fear of looking through photography.

 

I materialized with the camera the imaginary image I had of the other; fixing the appearance and identity of the other through the gaze, observing and criticizing myself.

 

I feel pleasure from looking.
