“For me photography is much more than a visual documentation; it is a personal journey, where dreams transcend reality, and material facts and the ethereal often merge. My subjects are neither coming nor going, but exist somewhere in the process. They are like lost souls in a recurring dream where silence is never broken and light and darkness co-exist, where fear and uncertainty lie deep in the shadows and the incomprehensible.” – Frank Dituri
