This project was developed during 2013 and is integrated in the 1000 Words Award for European photographers, organized by 1000 Words Photography (UK), in collaboration with Cobertura Photo (Spain), Atelier Visu (France), and in partnership with Magnum Photos.

Being and Becoming project is about emigration, in particular from southern to northern Europe. I was interested on ideas of hybrid identity, by exploring concepts of the third space and the Old and the New, the polarity of living in-between cultures, languages and borderlines. My aim was to explore photographically these complex intersections, by dealing with feelings and ideas of difference or strangeness, memory, identity and mobility.
