The diptychs in MEANDERS are two parts of one single situation. One side symbolizes the architecture of residential buildings, whereas the other represents a human figure caught in an intimate moment. In the images, as a continuous surface, the architectural body expands and become a human body, and vice-versa: both are closely intertwined. Marginality stands at the center of the diptych, both in the physical space and in the individual’s condition. The photographic project explores urban environment and includes an analysis of the suburbs in the broadest sense, trying to show one aspect of a complex subject. Suburbs can not be considered only as the city’s “peripheral areas”, because the city is continuously changing and expanding beyond its borders, and doing so, it confuses its geographical structure. There is rather a suburban dimension that pervades the metropolis. On a more philosophical level, the feeling of being an outsider and isolation are sensations generated by modern global society, where the bonds between people, and sociality, are happening more and more on a virtual level.
