Abaddon

Series of seven photographs. Seven imprisonments of the biblical monster taken with the trap by its own support.


I like monsters. My nickname comes from the name “Cetus” sea monster also known as the “Kraken” and etymological origin of the word “whale”. I like whales, monsters in literature, mythologies and religions. In particular, there are lots of monsters in the Bible, including Abaddon, the exterminating angel of the abyss in the Apocalypse of St. John.

I like to trap these monsters to make them endearing and exciting. I trap out of words in two-dimensional and graphic universe, reducing them to a format that obsesses me, by inking them in the real as in a simple aquarium.
