Symbolic Map

You will never know if you took the right decision. The only thing you learn is that there’s no turning back. You lose your identity. You don’t feel fullfilled. You have no homeland. You learn to see the world as a unit, without borders. The world belongs to you, and you are part of it.

Among paradoxes, contradictions and tricks, a way is being traced between return trips, several times at dead ends. The only common factor is photography, faithful companion, an ally in your voyage.

A project that traces a symbolic map of my odyssey during the last 30 years.
