This series explores the possibilities of double exposure to express the relationship between the monumentality of the street and tiny moments of the intangible that decorate them. We can form the city in our minds with volume and geometry as a guide to understand and position ourselves. But it is only together with the intangible, that ever changing street poetry, that can really give meaning to place. Double exposure is a technique using only the camera to create a painterly expression causing one to question where one image finishes and the other begins. In this wondering, there is something new, something to discover, something to feel.
Dense in sensation and discovery, not always easy to understand, this is the city.

“The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls..”
