Alter Ego.

I worked on a project called 'Alter Ego, I is another'.

I photographed 67 people who had a double personality. Some are light and fun, such as the one who dresses as a wrestler for fun, some were quite heavy with having to do with illness etc.

For each person I took two pictures: one as the 'normal' person, one with the 'Alter Ego'. 
Each picture has been taken in the same location with similar light.
I then asked them to write a small text explaining what was their alter ego, why etc.

Roman rigodons.

While in Rome I followed illegal vendors from Sri Lanka, fake centurions and policemen.

Every morning, around the coliseum, a theatre play is organizing itself.

A real life play.
Fake Roman centurions prepare their costumes.
Souvenir, drinks and T-shirts merchants set up their stalls.
Illegal vendors check the weather forecasts and prepare themselves to sell sun hats or umbrellas.
Policemen, in uniform or dressed as civilians are getting ready to chase the illegal vendors, either on foot or in cars.
Unofficial guides prepare their sales’ pitch.
Then the tourists arrive and everything begins.
Policemen run after illegal vendors who are trying to sell their wares to the tourists.
The tourists are trying to avoid the unofficial guides, whilst buying water bottles as expensive as Chianti.
Then the coliseum’s surroundings look like a big ballet where each actor is repeating, playing, dancing.
This is the great ballet of life.

This work was first presented in an exhibition sponsored and presented by Apix in Auckland, New Zealand.

The magic of the Rose.

Wonderland: The Magic of the Rose is the second chapter in a two-part exhibition exploring the world’s most popular flowers. The exhibition unravels the fascinating lineage of this flower family and explores fabulous tales of love, passion and secrecy that have made the rose revered by royalty, praised by poets, and enjoyed by gardeners around the world.”

I took most of the pictures for that exhibition organised by the Auckland Museum.
