TITLE: Of Lights and Shadows
The series developed as an attempt to collect everyday scenes as they transmuted into hallucinated visions. Every time I photographed, I could see light alchemizing matter into shadows, allowing the silhouettes of the world to cast their illusions onto what remained of reality.
