Inspired by Julio Cortazar’s novel “Rayuela”, the story is set in Paris, at the beautiful Hotel Amour.

As if you could pick in love, as if it were not a lightning bolt that splits your bones and leaves you staked out in the middle of the courtyard. They probably say that they pick her out because-they-love-her, I think it’s just the siteoppo. Beatrice wasn’t picked out, Juliet wasn’t picked out. You don’t pick out the rain that soaks you to the skin when you come out of a concert.

Julio Cortazar

I wanted to show my love during our first trip together in Paris. I believe memory is the language of feelings and that’s why I love freezing time so much and letting my souvenirs come back to me whenever I look at these photographs.
