“When light falls over a yellow flower and brightens it like the sun or the evening light transforms a white sheet hanging outside into the evening sky, blue with shadows, I want to capture it. I appreciate the way light can change something to enhance its colors or to make it joyous.
The sum of all colors of light creates white. My obsession with color and light is summed up by this mysterious “color” white. To me, white is unrealistic. One can never obtain pure white. As a painter one never uses pure white but must always must add a little bit of color to make it look real. My eyes and my camera are drawn to delicate, pure, light. Sometimes there is a stroke of luck and white appears in reality, clean and pure. When I see a splash of color and white, I feel lucky that I can capture something so beautiful, so perfect and pure made by chance.
The magic is in the fact that they are in real life; they are accidentally perfect. My series will be of photographs in which white plays a predominate role and a splash of color creates a perfect balance between blinding fantasy, and a touch of reality. “ Florence Italy, 2012 Shot on Nikon d750 50mm lens
