"The combination of words 'black' and 'colour' could be interpreted
either as a normal definition or as a paradox:
black recalls the darkness, the night, the absence of light and, so, the colour.
But in this pictures colour becomes a presence, turning the subject and the darkness that surrounds it. 
It is our perception of things, what attracts or repels.
We are imbued with colour and shadow in every moment of our existence, and their presence is inevitable.
This series is meant to be a 'memento', to remember our fragility and our bond with color and light,
fundamental elements of nature".
