It is my first non documentary project. I’ve been living at the sea side for my whole life, so beaches are a kind of natural environment for me. And the natural subject of my photography. I like watching how they change over the year. How the sea changes its colour, its sound and temper. What I like the most, however, is the relation between people and the beach. Tension is a better word, I guess. For many years I have observed and documented the sunbathers – when they come, what ways they go, where they spread their towels, what they do. How they look for a space that is free, but not too far from other people. It can actually be pretty close to them. Much closer than you think.
Afterimage is the result of the deconstruction and re-creation. Colours and bodies are my fibre. Welcome on my blanket.
