Scenes (2008)
"La Mamma is Coming" / "Staging my mind" / These images depict people trapped in more or less abstract sets.  I built and designed the composition as a choreography.

Scenes (1996)
These works do not strictly make up a series, but they share the concept of capturing a unique moment, to make it more than ordinary by simply documenting it.
The main characters find themselves sitting for a portrait, they recognize the painter and spectator in front of them. They appear surrounded by their things, clues that tell us about their lives, strategies of discovery or hiding with the painter/spectator as an accomplice.
