MoonWater

Just like entering an unknown dymension within a known place, the similarities between the liquid realm and the distant Moon are several: alien environments not adapt to a human body capacities, lack of oxygen, foreign surroundings, uncontrollable. However the inescapable drive we feel - to explore the other, the unfamiliar - comes precisely because the possibility of the dangerous and yet unseen.

Moon Water is a book aiming to lure the viewer in a different dimension where the charm of the sensuous image, of a quaint and extremely seductive matter, becomes an obsession for the photographer and the reader to pursue. Within the book - images from the Bankside of the Thames in London to the Spanish sea of Lanzarote, accompanied by NASA original material, in a constant back-and-forth dialogue between reality and fiction, the earthly and the other worldly.

Are the moon crust and the ocean surface really that different? Is it maybe possible to link the experience of our eyes and bodies skimming on water, to the outer space?

Fragments of spatial memory and outer space, as invitation for a discovery of the 'waterscape', without forgetting to look upwards.

The research it is still on going as the book making, although some edition mock-ups has been printed throughout the process.
