Equivalents, 2023

Equivalents is an artistic confrontation with Stieglitz's work, in which photography and imagination merge. Each photo is a window to worlds in which memories and emotions are interwoven. These images are more than just landscapes, they reflect our states of mind and are visual metaphors for our thoughts. This series creates a link between the concrete and the abstract, between our tangible reality and the worlds we create in our minds.
