When you create or doing something, the idea is important.
The Totem it is a visible thing to help us understand and not to forget invisible realities and meanings that are beyond the reach of our senses.
On this Photoshoot I found a ballerinas shoes fixed on the ceiling and regarded as a group symbol and as a protector of the theater dancers. It was something such as a particular mark that represents some piece of information and in the same time as a symbol which is always leave something unsaid. Totems always keep a secret of the success that is why we want to belong to them. That is why I decided to create the images.
