LIKE A DROP OF INK IN A GLASS OF MILK (2015)

The series of forty male portraits depicts a specific age and stage of mental evolvement, which I personally identify with through the project. Ink stains freely referring to the ones from the Rorschach test can be distinguished in each artwork. These abstract shapes were produced during individual photographic sessions. While interpreting the scenes observed on the paper, the dialog became focused on the perception of self-transformation that occurs during the internal maturing of a man. The act of photography has slipped in to the level of psychological study. The blank page that acquires its content by bleeding ink has become the analogy for the portrayed face as a projection of personality traits and thought processes.
