"Winter Tale is my last photomontage, created in 2019. The photograph describes a winter London scene full of symbolism. It has been created from images taken by myself but also using photographs from the internet, purchased photos and images taken from other resources. Some of the elements we find here are related to death and transition periods in our lives: someone's belongings found in the street at the centre of the image remind us of a house that has been emptied, a human arm can be found in the bottom corner, close to a winter bird that symbolises wisdom in transition periods, while a fox, an opportunistic animal, crosses the image. A bunch of crows is eating a dead rabbit behind the trash, some blood coming from the wall of snow evokes an unsettling feeling... life is full of mystery and death is part of it, when the snow melts a new hopeful period is yet to come."
