San Rutas

The roads between Argentina and Chile are marked by History, here is evoked General José de San Martin and his Andean Army, like a ghost tablecloth framing the “Libertadora” of South America.

Valparaiso and Santiago de Chile, Rosario and Buenos Aires, Montevideo… my first steps with cyanide salts are linked to South America, that’s where I learned the process, experimented and diverted the technique, gave my first cyanography courses… and an infinite source of inspiration.


From my blue eyes

Travel diary to the land of wonder.

The point of view of my photographs is marked, the treatment noticed.
A detail calls out to me, a landscape moves me, I see poetic arrangements everywhere in the way the world is made and I try to capture them.

Once these visions have been collected, at the other end of the globe or at the counter next door, I still use a process of subjectivity, the blue, ostentatious cyanotype print, with a pictorialist treatment that disturbs, stains and transforms the image.

This old collection goes back to my beginnings with the medium, I was still very attached to photo negatives and used them to retranscribe my enchanted visions, the sparks that I detect in nature and among humans.

The principle of life in blue!
