By changing the usual point of view and using reflection as a gate to an alternate reality, this photographic series aims to answer some of the questions I often ask myself: where do we go after we die? What do we leave behind after passing? Is there a parallel universe, an alternate dimension where psychic and material lives cross?

"I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak", wrote André Breton.

My series uses the immensity and depth of the sea to give a material life to this intangible and mysterious universe. It cultivates the idea of a parallel dimension where we wander for eternity. We are not here anymore, but we continue existing through memories, in this immaterial infinite. Memories give us new lives in different places, different situations. And through this Hereafter, we can see, touch and get closer to the people who don't have a material life anymore.
