I spent many hours in a white studio – a setting with the diffused light of the north – in an unmediated body-to-body encounter with free horses in a logic of total suspension, withdrawal and leanness. I passed long nights with the full moon looking at horses in the paddocks.

I tackled different times and spaces, without haste and with patient observations, to unite them in a single category : timeless photographs.
