Photography moves in time without a fixed place. Its untimely quality asks for a constant reframing of the many times it holds and, therefore, for our own projection and understanding of the past through narrative, memory and repetition. In a relation between the experience of place and a revisiting of its past images, this work explores image and its own temporality, fixed in an immeasurable present. In this long and immobile travel of no return we enter an experience enabled only by images in order to explore the possibilities and limits of our own reality.
