People do Water
People do water (2013-2019) is a photographic archive of human beings in the moment when they join the sea, an observation of people mating with water. Hydrophilia is a term to indicate the property of an element to absorb and attract water and, at the same time, a sensual pleasure produced by physical contact with water or in relation to images of people immersed in water. Re-interpreting the physical union with the sea is an attempt to displace the margins between the body and the space around the body, the sea.
Color and b/w film photographic series, 50 images + texts. Variable dimensions.
