The Distance is a series of portraits of young couples (at least one of them had to be in his/her twenties). Their name and age is indicated below each image, together with the length of their relationship. The work utilizes the social convention of the formal portrait to examine the possible disconnect between visual and textual information, as well as photography’s unreliability to capture the feelings between two persons.

I am interested in the way public spaces influence our quotidian experience. The images in Blind Views aim to underscore the rich amalgamation of cultural signs that make up the visual infrastructure of the street. I am particularly drawn towards spaces that offer numerous possibilities of interpretation due to their apparent neutrality.
