Photo 10José Diniz puts us as observers adrift at sea – where the paths are, by nature, undefined. A subjective point of view of who floats, and the Sea blend into the sky at the time water hits the lens. And mix a little in the images that refer us the sensation that we experience when we fell asleep in the sand; When the waves are our thoughts; When we exist in the coming and going of the senses. In aporia that is the sea there's no roads until we decide to invent them. The series is an artistic Exercise.
