Vipassanā – Mindfulness II
“For there is never anything but the present, and if one cannot live there, one cannot live anywhere.” ― Alan W. Watts
Continuing the series of self-portraits I started recently. What I aim with this series is to use myself as a subject and express in images the things I cannot express in words, which is what I actually do in all my photography. I won’t say more and let you discover the meaning yourself.

*Vipassanā – Mindfulness I *
First in a series of self-portraits I am working on, in an attempt to create (en)Visionography portraiture.
Vipassanā in the Buddhist tradition means insight into the true nature of reality, namely as the Three marks of existence: Impermanence, Suffering or Unsatisfactoriness, and the realization of non-self. In Vipassanā meditation, mindfulness of breathing and of thoughts, feelings and actions are being used to gain insight into the true nature of reality and of self. This awareness leads us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings. Vipassanā is the perfect expression of Socrates' dictum, "know thyself."

Blue Matrix II
It may seem like new aesthetics for me but I had this series on the backburner for a few years and it slowly came to life and now I am ready to reveal it. The reason of existence of this series is that I needed to abstract my way of expression in order to be able to look at the world in a different way. This series is my intention of interpreting life in a subliminal way without resorting to known shapes or objects to express my ideas but looking mostly for symbolic connections and interactions between basic geometrical forms and color. This gave me the freedom to distance myself from conventions and (self)censorship and be able to reach deeper into my subconscious and bring it to the surface. I could say this is the inside of my subconscious world or at least a part of it where formal reality is not present.

Blue Matrix I
First in a new series of photographs. Pennzoil Place, Houston TX – Interior
Continuing my exploration of the duo-chromatic concept I started working on a few years ago in blue-yellow tones, like in Manhattan Blues http://bit.ly/2o00mXg or Ancient Glow http://bit.ly/2omt5HD , now in a more subtle rendition aimed to evoke a different state of mind. I started the work on this series in 2014 but finished it in 2017. Many things happened in the meanwhile and they are all recorded here.
