The Interstellar Neighbourhood

If you were to expand Earth’s address, after ‘Solar System’ and before ‘Milky Way’, you’d have to mention the cosmic cloud our planet floats in – it’s called The Interstellar Neighbourhood, and it encloses the nearest stars to Earth. Among them, reside a few stars that are close enough for me to see my past in their light – past I have observed, and gathered in photographs to overcome the delay between the moment the light of the stars was radiated in the Universe and the moment it meets my eyes.

"This photobook is the result of the spatial awareness that I have developed as I grew up stargazing. It is a photographic map of my past that, at the same time, keeps me present — the stars are there, up above, stitching the outline of the interstellar neighbourhood."
