I am actually working on a large format camera set called "blinD."

Short about blinD:
“Prolonging an absolute need to catch life around me, i was looking for a twist to experience my private surroundings.
It's not about looking for my own identity, neither the one from the places or people crossing my path, what really matters here are the boundaries, limits and details i am related with in my everyday life.
Since we met with Candice in 2002, we've photographed each other, our environment and our relationship constantly through different toys from cheap cameras to medium and large format ones without hierarchy.
More than a classification of our lives, It's all about a progression speacking from its own.
This work is still driven by my personal life, but contrary to a diary where a strong belief in truth is requiered, it becomes an attempt of distance through anonym figure with all its strenghts and vulnerabilities expressed in my environment.
It's also a focus about change and the times we are crossing now, a temptation to become the passive spectator of my own story.
i'm afraid to get blind"...
