I am open / closed. There is within me an aperture visible / invisible through which passes an unceasing flow of strangeness that accumulates and opposes. The strangeness of my new identity has touched me deeply. I am a photographer and at the same time chronically ill from 2004. These two realities move and live in a parallel way, sometimes intersecting between them. The July 31, 2011 I took my first self-portrait, and for the first time I found myself in in two different spaces, in front and behind the camera, not just photographs but also the subject and then a spectator of my own shots and this triple role has made it which could come out a strong and deep creative process. July 27, 2012 arrived "the host". They open and close me, and the language changes, because there is a body where lives a new organ, the kidney of another person. So I start to wonder: "What is a body? How has changed it, what I feel? How can I ‘m alive if the life of my body is in the hands of another? I still do these questions. Now I have two system, two sets, two immune identity.
