In this new series apparently, normal images are enhanced by surreal and ironic elements: clouds ahead normal self-portrait, multiple hands spanning trees to the ends of the branches, a cat in ceramic teapots, a woman lying peacefully in a can of tuna etc.

Dissociative combinations, absurd compositions, situations in the balance between the dream and the wildest imagination, all in the clear and immediate receptivity of visible thought that the Photography moves in the picture”.
