MY HEART IS AN EMPTY BUCKETMY HEART IS AN EMPTY BUCKET is a verse from the poem 'Tabacaria' by the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, which inspired me to make a series of photographs and to create a poetic text based on popular sayings about the heart. This body of work is a visual and verbal response to the poem where I explore my own relationship with my heart. Working in the darkroom, I used a technique that allowed me to add my handwriting to the photographic print, creating a fusion between image and text. The series is about being aware of the intimate. What I carry inside my heart and how I deal with what is stored inside defines how I relate to others.
