“I usually don’t do this kind of photograph, but sometimes ideas come to my mind and I can’t help but execute them. I honestly tried to ignore this project for the past seven years, but it never stopped haunting me.
In the end, these images are the result of trying to visualize a vague emotional association I have between soap and its tactile experience. The lyricism arises from how subjective that experience could be.
This is a sculptural project in the way the material (common pinkish soap) and the process dictate the organic quality of the shapes, but it also concerns how photography sets a certain distance between me and the world to make that which is familiar, strange.
I feel like a spectator to these images. They evoke an uncanny and unsettling feeling of comfort and monstrosity."
