I'm interested in the media as representation of reality and as a creative process. I see this process of translation of reality to the media language and later interpretation by the readers, closer to the creation of any ancient mythology, with its heroes, villains and intricate drama, than to a scientific enumeration of facts. With that idea in mind I started taking pictures of the newspapers. My materials are limited by what is featured in the newspaper, but taking pictures of them creates a new representation and allows me to break their rules and look for new realities, forcing the public to create new interpretations outside the mechanical way of reading newspapers. I always photographed free newspapers and only people who are not famous or known apart from the piece of news featured, people with complex lives reduced to a picture and a paragraph. Characters who were only alive the single day the appeared in the newspaper.
