These images are part of an ongoing personal project called "Personae". "Personae" is a series of portraits of artists, neighbors, friends and people I cross paths with. Each subject brings a character and we build a story for it. The character can be an alter ego, someone famous, a character from imagination, an abstract piece, etc. One of my searches as a photographer is to bring back the idea of a studio portrait experience similar to that of early twentieth century but with a twist.
