I met with Aino first, when I stayed in Sweden. She is from Finland, and living her life in Stockholm as an artist, a circus performer. She liked my photography, I liked her way of inhabiting herself, it was as simple as that. We did a photoshoot together. Both of us are not so keen about talking too much. But somewhere, that day, Nature was speaking for us. She told me about her friend Aini, also from Finland. She is an observer of human beings and an enthusiastic person.
The day of the shooting, the three of us had a lot of fun creating the atmosphere of this photoshoot. At the end it went all naturally. The space, the light, our 3 souls, all of this reflects in the photos of that day.
When I look at the photo today, some weeks after the shooting, back in Barcelona, I feel something very positive. Behind those melancholic attitudes and colors, there is peace. An empty place in our mind. Somewhere where there is no space and time. In them, I seek the beauty of imperfection, the slowness at the pace of Nature. I see the faces of a new Era, the future does not have to be all bad. There is hope. And this hope start with individuals…
like Aini & Aino.
