At the very beginning, the choice of shooting the work of the modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer happened without plans or schedules. It was because of my admiration for his work and my desire to interact with his brilliant creations. He offers a visual interaction deeper than just revealing these fantastic constructions realistically. My goal was to transport his work into a mysterious reality — a singular universe based on introspection and pure geometry.

Niemeyer often said that curves make up the entire Universe. I have just been trying to take those curves to a new undiscovered place, not using the perfect technique of a craftsman. Instead, I used the sensibility of an apprentice.

About the creative process: I have based my works on the conflict between randomness and control. Therefore, the chosen camera is a lo-fi analog one. These cameras are well known for their unpredictability and limited control, as well as their peculiar aesthetics. For example, the camera has multiple exposures, which is a technique of shooting twice or more times on the same frame of the film. The creative process consists of imagining the composition and leaving a random gap. The multiple exposures on film have the freedom to create fusions of colors and forms that I could not see beforehand. Sometimes I use a plastic accessory which allows me to block the upper or lower part of the frame resulting in more subtle multiple exposures.

Not having total control over the image is part of the process to reach unique results. I do believe in the beauty of randomness. After all, we are not supposed to control everything all the time.
