The idea of the project is to go back to the roots, to the beginning of everything, to be able to merge it with the digital era, like the one we live in today.
It is the fusion of pinhole photography, with the 35mm format, digital photography and manual intervention.
The manual intervention is given with paint sprays, various objects, slides and endless elements, such as the technique "rayograms" (rayographs) invented by Man Ray in 1922, through which images are obtained without a camera.
"I developed against my camera and threw it away. I took whatever fell into my hand: the hotel room key, a handkerchief, pencils, a paintbrush, a piece of string. I was not obliged to bathe them in the liquid. I would lay them on dry paper and expose them to the light for a few seconds as if they were negatives. I was very excited and had a lot of fun." _ Man Ray
In short, it is about going back to the most primitive era of photography, where the photographer handcrafts the whole process, until it becomes a unique work of art.
A unique and unrepeatable piece, breaking with the main factor that a photograph can be copied countless times.
