This series is titled A blinding light. The images are part of a project carried out between 2005 and 2007 in two different countries: the desert of Wadi-Rum (Jordan) and the region of Kapadokya (Turkey). The main subject of these pics was the light, dazzling and sharp throughout the day. A light that surrounds people and objects, which gives them a surreal and metaphysical dimension.
