“Now if 6 turned out to be 9, I don’t mind, I don’t mind […] Dig, ’cause I got my own world to live through…” -Jimi Hendrix, “If 6 was 9”.
6 and 9 like yin and yang, flow into each other. They are not separate realities but different aspects of the same reality, like hot and cold both, are only different degrees of the same reality: temperature.
Still, in the works, Ibiza 69 is the second installment in my trilogy on the island of Ibiza.
If my first work, Ibiza Blanco Desnudo, Ibiza Naked White, tries to bring back to life the Mediterranean dreamland present in our collective memory, in the hope to raise awareness on the issues threatening the island, Ibiza 69, takes us deeper under the island’s skin as the borders of consciousness dissolve and expand.
This series of photographs is a sensuous hallucinatory black and white dreamscape shaped together in hypnotic rhythm. Teetering between fiction and reality, herein a world whose borders are fluid and blurry, where six may turn out to be nine.
