We need a big hamster


The ghost horse curse






As a photographer of abandoned places, sometime I find old rural houses from the last century, a real dive into the past, where you can touch what was the everyday life a century ago. The old agricultural machinery sleeps in stables that were stopped a hundred years ago.

The gigantic barrels, the acrid smell of leftovers inside the wine demijohns, the old work machinery, the excrement of farmyard animals, inside and outside the structures: these are the recurring elements of the environments in the middle of the countryside, what they breathed and our great grandparents lived.
