"When we die we return to the place where we came from."

Project: Je est un autre

I "is" another. I "is" many others, all even, perhaps.
In this work, I am the junction of some women, all adapted from an agglomerated of influences, inspirations, visual references and dreamed realities.
This project starts with the women who constructed me, who still construct me and who keep being the Me I am each day. They are fictional self-portraits, re-interpretations, symbolic reconstructions of what they mean in me.

How much of a character of a book is still present long after I finish reading it? How much of the author herself? And if I grew up with Edih Piaf's voice echoing through the house, how much of her do I have in me?
The entire project was photographed between the villages of my father and my mother, in the secret paradise that Portugal hides northeast. Everything is autobiographical.

This time it was only the women, this time...…
And a lot where left out, for now...
