Finisterrae departs from a reflection upon the ancient region of Lusitania in today’s Portugal, in search of the origins of European culture and identity. This “end of the world”, left me with a strong feeling of abandonment, like a place that is condemned to remain as it is, motionless. I set out to capture this claustrophobic atmosphere, representing the subjects as cultic figures. Time dissolves in a sense of inaction. The landscapes seem to be the only testimonies of time passing.
