Citing Valerie Massadian …“I believe that instinct is conscious, voluntary, in relation to is control, it `s too generouse.

It has everything to do with the way you dance with the world.

To Victor Hugo, who declared with great pride: “Instinct is the soul on all fours, thought is the spirit standing on all

fours” – I would say that instinct is the soul standing with the spirit on all fours. It is thought that elaborates and

finds an explanation to give to those who have forgotten what it is like to be on all fours.

What else is there other than instinct in that finger stretched out pressing the shutter, there, in that moment, in

that fraction of a second?

Lost among the photo albums is a multi-volume etymological dictionary, so…


– Inner and involuntary impulse that moves the human soul.

– Internal stimulation that determines the living being to be spontaneous, involuntary, or even forced; action for

the purpose of preservation or reproduction; or, more precisely, a mode of brain activity that leads to the

execution of an act without being aware of its purpose. …”

photography between 1992 and 1995 in Boston, cinema in Barcelona, and completed her cinema course in Gran

influence on Lorena’s photography was the fact that she surrounded herself with radical authors and watched

their original films.

reste avec vous”. She is one of the photographers of the Temps Zero collective, an international group of artists
