Surface Tension

"The surface is the external appearance, the envelope, the external limit of a thing. This is what the camera faces, and this is what photography tries to reveal. Rooted in Deauville, these photos can be considered as a study of form, texture and surfaces: an attempt to dismantle the external surface of things, and to find common points, associations. They are intertwined with each other, as in a novel, and they oscillate between depth and surface, essence and appearance, document and fiction. "
