Philémón's Dream – The Idea of Eternal Marriage

 I search, interpret and present by means of photography the nature of successful marriage. I take under examination why certain married couples stay and hold together till the end of life and what are the advantages of this affection for the individual and for society. I try to understand and present the difficulties coming with a long-life relationship. I attempt to reveal both the beauties and torments of coexistence and the fact that nowadays individualism has come into a strong conflict with humbleness which should be the basis of all well-functioning human relationships.


My photos present people living in real and long-lasting marriages and their environment. I try to emphasize such symbolic motives and patterns that have an important role in cohabitation. The scenes presented had been set and directed in order to show in the most subtle way the ambivalent nature of marriage.
