‘Art begins with difficulty’ – André Gide

According to me, a photograph, like any other work, has to result from a ‘difficulty’. It has to relieve the moment of fight, surpassing itself, rebellion or pain that gave it life.

I particularly like these moments where I stage myself showing contempt for comfort, warmth and ease. I like to think that the image resulting from it will be marked by feelings and smells I impose on myself. I like that my photographs make feel everything.
