Entangled in the obstacles of a dark and arduous life, a procession of humans advances towards the light guided by hope for a better life despite all the difficulties. Five photos merged by digital manipulation create a new metaphorical reality that symbolises the difficult journey of refugees or migrants in search of a brighter life. Inspired since a decade by textures of geological formations and the atmosphere of the seashore, my approach to fine art photography is to create emotional and aesthetic artworks to express universal realities, spiritual concepts and a deep relation with nature.
