Lourdes is a special place where people arrive to, not an end in itself, but a gate to a new life.
The most intimate hopes which result from invisible reasons, the sense of belonging to an absolute, the perception of a universal correspondence, drag them to this gate, with their faith, or with the « inescapable irrationality of that faith ».
An inexplicable tension that wants to rejoin the Mystery and that belongs to the dominion of the incredible, of the desperate, of the painful, of the divine. Lourdes is the extreme expression of that desire, a threshold.
Photography is an attempt to explore the unknown, a possible way to reconnect to inspiration, to the Mystery.
