2020-2021 — Mallorca, Balearic Islands
About this series
The series was created during the pandemic mostly in the tourism hotspots of Magaluf, Playa de Palma and Palmanova, places I rarely visited since living in Mallorca.
The lockdown gave me the opportunity to allow these seemingly unreal places, to work on me in a peaceful and quiet way. I found a fantastic world full of monuments whose patina and poetry captivated me more and more. Again and again I returned to the abandoned urban landscapes, where man and architecture have become strangers to each other.
The Sun Will Shine Again Tomorrow is a pause, like the pause between inhaling and exhaling.
