This series reflects about intimacy. It is a broad portrait with a domestic atmosphere about my wife Teresa, and our private life in a place shared between the two of us. These images are a performance of Teresa by my mind’s eye. Her body has always been very important to me, the way she moves and the movements that she might not even be aware of. There are unconscious, natural poses… That doesn’t mean they’re the result of habit, but the body itself is aware and reacts naturally.
