Photography is a consequence of positivism, that is, it is an instrument which allows us to get empirically closer to the nature of things. Photography is in itself a way of containing reality, of classifying and labelling it. It is thus converted into an "objective" instrument with which to understand the world.
Photography is not only a document which is rich in detail, but also an instrument which soon manifests itself as an ideal instrument for classification. All classification or inventory supposes fragmentation, a fragmentation which is necessary for reorganisation. This is one of the other facets which photography provides: reality, though its representation, becomes more "fragmentable" and differentiable, and therefore we can produce smaller units which lend themselves to more meticulous classifications.
My work is inscribed in the field of nature and science, primarily in botanical (herbarium) and zoological (bestiary) studies. Thanks to the systematization, serialization and repetition of animal and vegetable elements, I develop my discourse on scientific knowledge and the unknown, on the corporeal and the ephemeral, on the stable and fleeting, on order and chaos.
