‘In the pictures of ‘Knots’ the bodies intertwine while asking for help or simply protecting themselves from the shadows. The ‘Knots’ are an aesthetic exercise to bare the almost physical pain caused by loneliness, rejection and neglect. They are a naked plea, anonymous in most cases (i.e. faceless), to escape the shadow or vacuum which wraps the individual.” – Enrique Toribio
