"the worn but happy light switch"
the light switch is the same, dirty with fingeprints, still functions... biography of moments, not moments of biography.
this is my room where these registered moments stayed...they are not subjects is only a subject, this room and its light switch. light bulbs are changed.

"the light switch as we know it today, is nothing more than a device that, connected to an electric circuit, has the function not only to interfere with the circulation but also to distribute the energy as a work concept. Placed generally on a wall, it works from the modification of its commutation position." [>]

Texture is, the aspect of a surface or either, the skin of a form, that allows to identify and distinguish it from other forms.

When we touch or look at an object or surface "we feel" if its skin smooth, rugous, soft, harsh or waved. Texture is, therefore, a visual or tactile sensation.

Show us photos of textures.

When you leave Luanda by bus heading for Benguela you leave the confusion, disorganization and the contrasts between the wealth of those in charge and the poverty of those who lives literally in the garbage, and enter real Africa.

The first 400 kilometers are done in good traveling conditions, but after Sumbe the wholed road starts and the rythm of the travel decreases drastically. After nine or ten hours of travel one arrives in Benguela, a city under reconstruction with hospitable population and a very different rhythm from the capital.

This series of photos document the bus trip, the "zungueiras" or roadside merchants and a little of Benguela's beautyness. [>]
