Contemporary artworks framed in antique frames
Some of my photographic works are intended for framing in old frames. I like to associate the timeless value of my works with a time in history that the frame evokes.
For exemple, this photograph was taken in the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd in San Sebastian, in Spain.
When I take photographs in spiritual places, I often see angels or mythical creatures appear in my images. The long exposure times allow the invisible to record on the films in my cameras. For example, in this photograph, a Phoenix is flying. The Phoenix is a bird from Greek mythology that by its power is reborn from its ashes after being consumed in the flames. It symbolizes the cycles that punctuate life, death and resurrection. It is also called the firebird.
