One day, while I was walking alone with my camera in Naples, I crossed the path of this little girl who was trying to understand the meaning of the things around her. The people walking, the sounds of the birds, the interactions of the people at the bracelet stands, the color of the sky.  Her father patiently gave her his interpretations. Until she saw me, and our eyes met, she became silent, her father probably about to comment on this new presence. Which you can see as this image.

We are children playing adult, wandering through the fog, casting illusions of grandeur and promises of success beyond the periphery. Perhaps it is what goads us on, a flicker in the fade. 
My name is Arnauld D'Angelo Sylvain, and I am a painter. This work is a collection of photographs I've taken in Verona, Italy. During the Winter of 2017. All on 35mm film. During that winer, me a couple of architecture students were invited to stay in a Villa on the countryside of Verona while we ventured into the various towns of Italy in search of architectural treaures.

This photo is about modern girls who can be very strong, despite their fragility, lead people and be real inspirations.

PCOS is a photographic project that records my journey since March 2021, when I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Through an exploration of the self, I analyze my condition, how it manifests in my body, my mind, and the experience of regulating it.

PCOS, in its most simple forms, is a condition that only female-born women can experience. The leading diagnosis notices multiple ovarian cysts in the ovaries. However, PCOS extends further and complicates many areas of the female reproductive system such as an irregularity in your hormones, insulin level and menstruation cycles. Other symptoms may be excess hair growth, acne, obesity, inflammation, excess androgen, and dark patches in the skin, among others. Bodily and mental complications include infertility, diabetes, natural miscarriages, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea, mood swings, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, abnormal uterine bleeding, and endometrial cancer. Because of the different components of the condition, the photographs were taken around four categories: body, mind, treatment and food. Together the photographs present to the viewer a fragmented image of my body and my PCOS.

Learning about the condition and its complications came as a shock but also gave me a sense of reassurance. After 22 years, I finally feel like I am making progress towards truly connecting and controlling my body. The diagnosis made me spiral into a deep investigation of why it took so long to determine a condition that affected every aspect of my life, and in that investigation I was taken aback about how many women go undiagnosed, the gaslighting that the healthcare system in the USA consistently presents to women of color and the difference between the diagnosis of male and female doctors.

From the origin of universes to the moment of endless existence, each soul seeks to know itself deeper and deeper. And what if everything already known, suddenly our destinies are already predetermined. In this photo the artist shows the universe of infinity, deeply enveloped in the elements from where we came from and where we really feel comfortable without fear and pain without regrets and reproaches. This underwater  photo was done in amazing Bali island in Indonesia

As an oyster to the shell we are tied to our bodies Plato wrote, so the body of the woman is tied to an indelible collective imagination and in the same way I am tied to my body and theirs.

"I've got sunshine on a cloudy day"
The contrast between visible and apparently visible generates some kind of interest in the observer. A feeling that opens the doors of imagination, disorienting the common sense that makes things already fully visible.
