Pacific Trash Vortex
2019
(Extract from a corpus of 33 photographs)

A sort of unrealism of our culture, built like an artificial imagination, PACIFIC TRASH VORTEX brings together photographs torn by a Cornelian opposition between love and indifference maintained with the packaging of food products that fail to unleash gluttony. They are not as they are, but like small boats wandering under water.

Before they come to life, become micro-particles and take to the sea with the complicity of heavy tides or giggling winds, I brought back to my photography studio, besides seaweed and sea water, some of these pragmatic objects. Since one of the rules of the game in foresight is to give oneself the right to imagine and reconstruct everything, the images obtained here are not attempts to pretend with what is happening underwater. Only inscriptions (bar codes, letters, numbers) that only humans can understand are recognizable, a proof that they are indeed ours.

In search of freedom, equality and democracy, our societies have created a major gap between themselves and the territories where they live. As night dreams can do, which activate the conscience upon awakening, my photographs act as a revelation of a doubt about who we really are, beggars of love. Our earthly ties are clearly lacking in tenderness.
