Publisher's Description

It’s thirty-six degrees. A dry desert sun burns the roof.
From up here the vast empty ground seems endless.
The heat and the wind touch my skin.

I open a door,

the background noise of the city fades away.
With my eyes closed I see an ocean of weightless light rays
dancing, floating…

I trust my body. I’m here.


For several years I climbed numerous rooftops to make pictures, over and over again. For a long time I didn't know exactly why; I simply felt attached to these strange, unknown and obscure places. I explored my city from a different angle and I photographed architectural situations up there being fascinated by the vastness and expanse as well as its limitation by moments of blocked sights. Eventually I realized that I had compiled a personal map - an imaginary walk in another dimension.
