“Embrace a memory” is an ongoing project trying to depict the process of remembering. What is important, what is not, what lasts and persists in time and what fades out. Each photograph is the visual representation of someone’s precious memory. Is it a frozen

“Still-Life”, a dead scene/”Nature Mort”

or something that lives and grows with you, within you over time? These photos work as emotional landscapes holding details, sensations, colors, echoes of a lived reality and impression. I follow a certain protocol; I use simple objects in synergy with parts of a human body trying to show the somatic relation, the fleshy materiality of what rests in our mnemonic mechanism. Illustrating whispered confessions full of emotion and intimate narrations.
