BLEACH - 2014 - 2015

Shooting, in the awareness of time, I chase the light, shadows and details. Always with a minimum of 10 rolls in my bag.

Developing the film is by pushing, pulling, always testing the limits. These last 2 years I have been processing through my homemade stand development recipe, sometimes the film sits for 3 hours in the mix.

The negative is my beginning, to bleach, bend, cut, scrap, throw the negatives in a drawer or leave them out on any dusty surface, anything to let it collect life.

Rebuilding the image is where I am always unaware of time. I start with the most hopeless images, because there is nothing to lose. Hours mesh into days, there is an alchemy of magic that comes into play. The only thing I am aware of is the afterwards, I find it impossible to walk among the people on the street or even speak to another living soul.

Editing the aftermath, being a one person operation, I restart the play again with my cameras, to create a distance and procrastinate from the process of editing. After a 5 to 6 month period I can return to the previous project with fresh eyes, and edit the images, this process helps me to see what I could not see before.

My process was once a passion, now it is my addiction.
