“Hemicránea” tries to capture the problems of living with an illness such as chronic migraines: invisible, but a disease which hampers those who suffer it. Personal, social and professional difficulties are not only affected by the sickness itself, which incapacitates and isolates the patients, but also by the invisibility and a systematic downplaying of its symptoms.
From portrait to pseudoscientific photograms or electrical charges, the images are meant to immerse the viewer into a trip through different states and feelings that the patients experience on their daily basis.
Wet plate collodion on clear glass and mirrors from 36x36cm to 71x71cm. I use layers, transparencies, reflections, and textures that are distinctive of the process and adapt the images to them.
