In my most recent work, Elsewhere, I explore themes such as nature as a transcendental space, displacement and the landscape as a coping strategy. Using a modified digital camera for infrared photography, I aim to explore the more mysterious and surreal elements of the landscape, using a poetic language where time seems to be suspended. Challenging the restless feeling of not belonging, otherness, and cultural constraints, the landscape has offered me a cathartic relief, shaping a renewed sense of connectedness with nature. Making both real and imaginary landscapes, I dissolve space and time, creating an interruption, an absence, giving a feeling of being elsewhere. Reality is suspended, reminding us we are just a small part of nature, united with it. There is an invitation seeking us to ponder and reflect, to create a moment of emptiness, a spark of consciousness. In all the nuances of simplicity, nature reveals the divine, helping us to understand the world through an act of solitude. Photography becomes an instrument through which I can reveal not only the nature that encloses me, but the nature that reflects the landscape within. A silence arises, reproducing a calm and precious universe, suspended in time, next to the world itself—a transcendental space evoking an allegory of a place called home.
