And, around me, comes the light

And, around me, comes the light


In a world that makes us prisoners, that doesn’t seem to want us anymore, imagination is what makes me free. I take my snapshots, remove the emulsion and through the manipulation and incision of the back I can scratch the veil of reality. I leave home, I go elsewhere.
Looking carefully, I find in the little things of every day, details, visions and clear images.
And, around me, comes the light.
Silvia Ricci
