Encounters within Fiction



I am the town-photographer of a fictional place. The portraits I take are inventive visualizations of existing characters from novels. Today, where truths are always dissected and questioned, I set out to create imaginative documents. By combining the eyes of one person, with the mouth of a second, and the nose of a third, I slowly give birth to a character living on the border of fiction and actuality. I present my photographs as if they are documentary, yet at the same time they are obviously constructed.

So far I’ve created all the main characters from Jorge Luis Borges’s Garden of Forking Paths, Tom Barbash’s The Women, as well as Paul Auster’s novel Leviathan.
