    Digital Capture From 35mm Negatives Projected On A Canvas, Using The City As A Backdrop.
  • Photo Date
    April 15th 2020

These images arise from fear, nostalgia and uncertainty, from the quarantine, in my case alone, starting from archive images and, in other cases, asking my friends and parents to self-portrait, converting these digital images into 35 mm negatives, to be projected on a canvas, as if they were a film about a portable screen. It causes the sensation that what we are experiencing is not real, that it is like a movie, a fiction, using the city as a backdrop. Is an inversion of narrative roles, the images projected are a representation of reality, while this suspended city behind is now a fiction.
