The exhibition shows a group of new works, Photomorphosis photographs, from the "Mirrors, The Garden" (3) cycle.
The works of this cycle have evolved over the years and The Garden motif is central to them.
The fields of meaning of the reflection, the echo and the repetition are fundamental to the images that are embodied in them.
