"I’ve always been fascinated by the interaction between the artworks of a museum and the public. While visitors gather to look at a painting, sometimes the characters portrayed in nearby pictures seem to be watching themThis tension leads me to melt both planes with my camera by means of a double exposure. My attention focuses on what may exist between reality and fiction to find a theatrical sensation, trying that the transparency between the two images may create a new dimension, a ghostly presence in which past and present intertwine.”
