The project Merge began in 2014 and is ongoing. I find it interesting how photography gives us the possibility to create a new reality as we want to see it. I do not try to force images, but rather I focus on being patient and attentive. I see the streets as a photographic playground, and I explore, looking for situations and moments when subjects become one with their environment.
