The Witness / Fall of the Berlin Wall Anniversary 1989-2009
Growing up on the wrong side of the wall might mean becoming blind. Everything that is behind it seems muffled and invisible. The reality is just a surrogate offered by the authorities, and it marks the passing by days till they become years. This is why we have chosen to portray symbolically 20 blind young people in their twenties, photographed in a tight close up of their faces, where the eyes are as if covered up by a white patina that makes impossible the vision of the world."

The series isn't used for an advertising campaign yet, but I think that's only a matter of time.
