TPL: Talk to us about your series STA(Y-AC)TION. When and how did this project first manifest itself?
EM: I wasn't interested in public transport before. The interest, which has only developed in the last few years. is mainly the train station or tram station. At the station is interesting, there are many things that could happen there.
To my friends and I, it is our meeting point. We call it “Stay Action”. When we have planned for a vacation for a few days or a day outing, we always meet in the station. The place is easy and we have fun memories. Easy if you pay close attention to review or memorise the plan, schedule, stop over – station to station and platforms.
I use these outings to take the opportunity to pursue my passion of taking photos of what is going on about in the station. I must be alert to react, to move, to capture the that moment of time. Observing the passengers coming and going, waiting and staying. Being aware of dangers that may happen.
Those characteristics of life in my project STA(Y-AC)TION are engaging, relevant, always close, memorable, loving, crying, fighting, dramatic, crazy-funny, hilarious, vicious and most of all, I love my thoughts of that time of moment that goes through my mind as I press the shutter...it's confusing but interesting!
