About the Coney Island Project

"Browsing through my repository of images, I started to be attracted by a subconscious theme running through the work that was induced by childhood memories of the Black Sea: an archive of nostalgic moments mapping my own displacement in the New World.
Roaming between panoramas and close ups, all the new, the lens of time over exposes the old glam in subconscious dreamscapes."
