It's the story of my father who had a stroke, of a young trans man who had to quit his studies to focus on himself and heal his psychological wounds, of a young woman who did not like her body, like many women, and who suffered from endometriosis. It's the story of a friend whose self-love was challenged, of a daredevil little brother. It is also the story of strangers who left a trace of their existence, of loved ones who overcame illnesses, of damaged bodies and spaces. Healing takes time, it requires a lot of patience, courage and love. Sometimes you have to destroy everything in order to rebuild, to be reborn, but it takes time and behind each wound there lies what makes us truly human. It takes time to heal is a project about fragility and resilience, a series of photographs, combinations of images taken over the last five years. It is my way of transcending pain, the anxiety of everyday life, of going beyond my fears in an attempt to make the human experience universal, to gather and unite the living.
