Innocence (work in progress)
Most recent series of type C camera-less contact prints (photograms) created in a color darkroom using discarded organic and man-made materials. These days, nature appears as the only place with no agenda, where nobody is trying to sway you or sell you something. This innocence, and what's meant by innocence is not purity or the lack of experience but the presence of grace, is in our hands, and sadly we continue to destroy it.
The choice of materials was inspired by Arte Povera movement and working with the everyday when primary forms brings out awareness of natural symbolism and environmental forces silently present in daily life.
