Book description: Space Ipsum is a compilation of aquatic stars and constellations. Through the spellbinding aesthetic of the spatial conquest, the humanity phantasm, I tried to explore here one of the most essential theme about photography: the truth and the lie. What is the most important? The exact representation or the one that we always had in mind. The stars, even if we can admire them every night, stay for the most of us, unknown. With these fake astronomic pictures, I harnessed this unknown notion which let the freedom to the viewer to project himself where he wants. I guess there is a connection and an attempt to revived our heart of child, when our imagination came before the truth.
