Performers is an archive collating portraits of artists using live actions in their practice.
My aim is not to document art actions, but to capture the personalities that are behind those actions. Usually I take the photo right after a performance with the purpose of retaining the energy that a live presentation imbues in the artist.
Moreover, I aim to situate the figure in a specific setting or against a relevant background. In this way, additional meanings come across, suggesting associations between the corporeal expression and the intensity of the surrounding space.
Working on the project since 2010, meanwhile the Performers archive includes 190 different artists.
