“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.” Carl Jung
There is the world of light, where everything has color, is clear and leaves no room for imagination, everything is there, in the right place, above, below, behind, there is a time running in one direction, it is a place with certainties. But for many, there is another world, which is not visible, you have to look for it on the other side of the moon, where there is not much light, the place of doubts, of imagination and of the irrational, where our fears and our passions live, it is the world of shadows.
In the dreams and the drunkenness, the delight of existence is reached, the dream is the game of the individual human being with the real thing. The umbra (in Latin, “shadow”) is the deepest and darkest part of a shadow, where the source of light is completely blocked by the occlusive body of reason.
This is the series that I carried out during the 2020 confinement, taking some of the photos that I took in previous years and transforming them.
