is a series of digital colour photos, based on the idea of the mystical night -the Dark Night of the Soul

they are seascape photos, most of them taken between 2007 and 2011

example from the art book "vom Schwarzen Meer zur dunklen Nacht", edition by the artist, 2014


"En una noche oscura,
con ansias, en amores inflamada,
¡oh dichosa ventura!,
salí sin ser notada,
estando ya mi casa sosegada."

San Juan de la Cruz "La noche oscura" ("Canciones del alma")
