No Longer Here, but Still Not There

One day I woke up wanting to dress in white, it was a penetrating and vivid desire. I think it was my innocence claiming presence…

This is how in 2011, I started working on my series No longer here, but still not there. Adolescence imprinted in me that moment where we live the innocence behind, and not because we want to or because we are aware of it, it simply happens because we began to use purity to attract and also to seduce.

This series shows the awakening of sensuality and sexuality with its edges. Although, it is a very intimate event such intimate that it is difficult to penetrate its intricate mysteries, it is strongly intervened by external forces; the culture in which we grow-up and the society than surrounds the event. Adolescence expresses thus an individual and a collectively identity.

The photographic sessions were intimate and fleeting, as is the case of adolescence. The models received basic instructions, like where to direct the look or where to place. It was important for me to let them be, and let them show all the sensuality they have inside.

In this series reality is intersected with my imaginative life, remembering my own adolescence.
