This is a work in series that doesn’t hesitate to mix black and white with color, to restore impressions, in familiar spaces or from travels to Cuba, Bosnia, or the United States. By means of small touches, as subtle as his small format prints, he lets the light surround the scene, caress the shapes, subtly define the space, without seeking to demonstrate, but always wanting to provide a way of seeing. To see, with the most accurate of distances, tiny moments of grace that refer to a classical pictorial culture, almost romantic. And time stands still, even when we notice the travel and the instantaneous pleasure of discovery.
