PROJECT DESCRIPTION

During my participation at Belgrade Art Studio Residency I worked on a diary, the project I show today.

The diary has the power to clear up my mind, create a daily discipline, routine, rituals that help me to live consciously, connect with my inner essence and go deeply into my creativity. The discipline that forced me to keep a diary put into movement a machinery that gives a space to make things happen.

From the end of January to 31st March, I used the images I took across the city to reflect about my life and myself.

THE PROCESS

During the time I worked on the diary I had the chance to live in the moment and forget about the final result. When only today is important, when I am not afraid of making mistakes or I do not have any kind of expectations I am more creative, bolder to play, prove, etc.

I took photographs every day and later when I came back home I reviewed all and chose one per day. Within the weeks I can find patterns repeating themselves and I am going to work on them in the immediate future.

SPAIN I VISUAL ARTIST

Her subjects are taken from, and inspired by, personal experiences in the city and her daily life. Susana tries to communicate through her pictures the history, architecture, consumerism and even immigration patterns of a city.
