MY CONTEMPORARIES

A trace of my Memories

The intention of this series is simple. To create a memoir of my artists friends evolving around me and my practice. Here I document intimate moments of friendship, laughter, discussions, silence, dancing, shared meals, home / studio visits or during an exhibition opening. Any worthy occasion becomes a perfect reason to create a memorable portrait.

With age, I at times lose track of people and events. This memoir shall serve as a trace reminder for myself, for my contemporaries and hopefully for future generations!

If You Want to Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want to Go Far, Go Together.
