Lines of Shadow
The “Lines of Shadow” series is articulated by photographs of ordinary buildings. Abstract compositions, formed by lines and surfaces in a single plane, seek to find a minimalist aesthetic in the daily life of the urban environment. The intention is to suggest that art can be perceived anywhere by anyone.
On the other hand, by moving away radically from the representation of its object - the architectural building - and adopting a visual record close to the drawing or engraving, each image provokes doubts and stimulates the questioning of the photographic language itself.
“Lines of Shadow”, in short, is an invitation to look.
