Unified by the unconventional theme, the images talk about the spatial continuity, about
fluidity, about surprising details, curves or edges, about perfection, but mostly about
the sought-after imperfection of architectural forms and shapes. They speak of the choice
of the onlooker to engage him/herself in a sensual dialogue with such imperfections.
Zooming-in to certain details, the architectural remnants generate an archive of different
frames, unified by contrast under a specific volumetric light. Such an archive turns to be
an unexpected labyrinth of fortuitous passions, and, as such, transforms a public
open-space into an intimate cloister of sensuous nuances.
