THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S DREAM (2013) I dream of being a photographer without a lens. I dream of passing onto the other side of the camera, not behind or in front of it, but inside, where the image lives. I dream of becoming part of the landscape, of the magic upside-down world of light that comes out of the darkness - through a small hole. So I turn my room into a camera and make it my home, my playground, where I can dream of unlimited parallel worlds in which the Real ceases to exist.
This series of self-portraits was producing during the Guapamacátaro International Artist Residency in Mexico, inside different rooms which I turned into Camera Obscuras, including a large studio where a performance was held for the Open Day in collaboration with poet Amyr Rabiyah and dancer Alicia Marván.
