This selection of images is a small taste from my early works based on the search for one’s identity, and grouped together under the title “Fragmented Memory I”, a project developed from 1993 to 2013. All of them contain objects that are no longer in use. But in reality these are not the protagonists in my images, but what is hidden behind them, what is no longer visible, the stories they treasure. And so, whether they are forgotten in the attic of my paternal grandparents, crowded in second-hand flea markets, or hidden in some abandoned house, any place is propitious for finding an object whose soul resonates with mine, transporting me to my childhood, that time of play, of discovery, and in short, of the construction of my own identity.
