Começo a aprender a deixar ir. Parece complexa a afirmação, mas é disso mesmo que se trata. Tive 60 imagens em minha casa desde final de Maio, paradas em cima do estirador, à espera de serem expostas e doadas ao espaço e, por mais absurdo que isso passa parecer, tive que aprender (bastante depressa, devo-o dizer) que, a partir do momento que as colocámos na parede, deixaram de nos pertencer e temos que as olhar com o distanciamento de quem vê uma exposição num museu, ou de quem vê cartazes na rua… assim mo disseram e eu concordo. Começo a conseguir fotografá-las sem preocupações e apenas com o olhar crítico de quem observa a cidade. Gosto desta sensação, dá asas para criar e ir em busca de outros espaços e caminhos.

I’m starting to learn to let go. It seems a complex statement but it’s precisely what it is. I had 60 images in my flat since May, waiting on the top of my drawing board to be exhibited and donated to the space and, as absurd as it might sound, I had to learn (quite quickly I must add) that, since we hang it on the wall, it stopped belonging to us and we must look at it with the same distance we have when we attend an exhibition in a museum, or the look of those who watch billboards on the street… someone described it that way and I agree. I start to photograph the images without any concerns, only with the critical eyes I use to observe the city. I like this feeling, with provides me with the inspiration I need to create and search different ways and spaces of doing things.
