"Abandonment is a common destiny.
A sumptuous abandoned palace is not so different from a humble country cottage.
The ruins are similar: the colors, the cracks, the inevitable return of nature taking possession of these places.
But what I find most interesting are the lives that are imbued these walls.
I am an explorer, or rather, a collector of places.
Mine is an uncontrollable urge, a kind of affection for these ruins and to those who inhabited them, or visited them... sometimes I feel like I can even feel their presence ... ha ha ha! I know, maybe I let myself get carried away.
I move alone, trying to maintain an attitude of the utmost respect.
The silence of these places has its own sacredness which should be preserved.
Every time I leave a piece of myself, perhaps the craziest part of me. Ha ha ha ha!"
