Ero is a mental state which manifests itself in each of the portrayed characters. The work shows beings that have either not known or forgotten the heat of the sun, trapeze artists who have lost balance and have fallen on the other side of the border.
The people who inhabit Ero drag their existence across a fearsome moor that shows no horizon. On them, the photographer fixes his look, and in that way he exorcises his ghosts and his fears. The portraits end up being distorting mirrors of our darkest side.
