Print on photographic paper mounted on a white passe-partout and protected in an adhesive plastic pocket.
Faraway, home. Childhood demons as a carry-on baggage. Sail unknown lands in search for identity. Fragile construction in sliding territories. And finally gather enough strength to allow oneself reconciliation. Become wholly tamed to light-heartedly continue on one’s route.
"I traveled the world and the seven seas. Everybody is looking for something" - Eurythmics
This photograph was taken in Valliguières, a village in Southern France where I lived until 16. I walked away early hoping to be reborn different elsewhere. After more than 30 years of avoidance behavior, it became clear that the only way to end up with my old ghosts was to face them.
