“In my last project, “Memories of Paper”, I photograph façades, recesses of buildings, more or less degraded, and print these captures on ordinary paper. Then I crumple and throw them away as waste part of a construction process. After this, in an act of historical rescue, I photograph them once again, giving them a new shape, a new weight, a new dimension. I question the frontiers between present and past, between memory, remembrance and oblivion.”
