In jail, my body is constrained but remains able to create. Only my hand is visible as it activates the shooting distance.

The air release cable, the single connection with the outside world, is no longer just an instrument for accomplishing a “photographic act”, but turns out to be a way for me to achieve freedom. It is in the dark we start to see.
