Presentation of the collection
"Coffee Omen" or "Coffee omen" is a collection resulting from the shots of coffee cup bottoms
It is the result of chance, one morning in autumn 2018, on returning from a trip to Italy with the use of a small Italian coffee maker. Then for several months it became a ritual, a coffee moment imbued with discovery. I work from the natural light passing through the cup, and traces, imprints - portents according to some - emerging from the coffee grounds.
Sometimes the Coffee Omen is already present at the shooting, sometimes you have to go find it in the traces left by the marc. Finally, the final image offered to the gaze arouses in everyone a personal reading according to the inspiration of the moment, a dream that unfolds, a deeper drive.
Each Coffee Omen has a number depending on the time of shooting: Year / Month / Day / Hour / Minute, because I prefer to leave the gaze that sees it the freedom to find a name for it.
Finally, the Coffee Omen lends itself to various nuances and layouts. Throughout the inspirations, I decline them on different media (all to be discovered on this site).
