Summary of project:

“I began the Lumina series in 2009 after Museo was published a year earlier as I intended to work primarily in colour from then on. The transition from black and white photography has not been easy, as I found that colour completely destroyed the essence of an image when it is over-represented within the frame. The abstraction of colour to its minimum, and focusing on subtle and minimal hues was a challenge that I did not expect would work, but over the years and after numerous editing sessions, I have come to respect its formal representation, which are displayed in this collection.”
