‘Come and see’
And I looked, and behold the pale horse,
and he that sat on him was dead.

The shoreline, hot and humid, is a postcard that attracts and invites Men to settle where the land meets the Yellow Sea. However, the reality is dissonant. Although surrounded by natural beauty, beaches and entertainment facilities, the city and its urban spaces transmits, as a whole, a feeling of artificiality. In some cases the abundance created a certain degradation and abandonment. With a splendor that takes us back to a recent past, a certain melancholy is present, as happens with all that was new, colorful and perfect but perished with time. Dalian; China.

This series reflects about intimacy. It is a broad portrait with a domestic atmosphere about my wife Teresa, and our private life in a place shared between the two of us. These images are a performance of Teresa by my mind’s eye. Her body has always been very important to me, the way she moves and the movements that she might not even be aware of. There are unconscious, natural poses… That doesn’t mean they’re the result of habit, but the body itself is aware and reacts naturally.
