Those dark sounds are the mystery, the roots that cling to the mire that we all know, that we all ignore, but from which comes the very substance of art.Federico García Lorca

Since 2013, I’ve photographed more than 50 subjects covered in paint and mud.
What started as an innocent experiment, turned into a repetitive attempt to project my mood during a rather challenging period in my life.
Today I am sharing the first part out of two from this body of work I’ve slowly created. I call it Hex 000000.
The works represent a photographic study of colour and human textures.
They also represent an expression of mood, a reflection of myself.
Hex 000000 is the computing code on web pages and image-editing programs for the colour Black. The name was chosen to focus on colour, rather than ethnicity.
A long black sleep
Descends upon my life
The fear, the insecurity
Confusion and uncertainty
The longing for connection but inability to follow through
I can no longer see anything
I am losing my remembrance
of the bad and the good…
