The days of the old buildings on Camera Obscura street are counted. In one-year time they’ll be gone to make a place for new and modern houses eventually.
But for now, this is still a post-war neighbourhood, often associated with anonymity and gloominess, where people continue to cope with their environment short before parting with it.
The ones who end up here cope with aging, immigration, illegality. They struggle to find work, to contain their personal and cultural integrity. I try to touch that through photographs of their domestic landscapes.
Such neighbourhoods are in the quiet gray areas of the city; few have seen life as it is here and soon nobody will. I strive for realistic pictures to make a personal diary of the days in this place.
