Playground is intended to open a window into a world, however familiar it may first appear, that resonates with one of our universal compassions and the icons of contemporary life: the act and ritual of taking photographs. This project aims to magnify the extraordinary in the ordinary, revealing facial expressions, gestures or body language of the subjects behind their own visual recording device. It is about the drama of people in their private moments, when their face or body language reveals the most hidden parts of their inner world in public places. The interplay between private and public, individual and social are the main inhabitants of this photographic project.
