Metaphorically we are faced with a theatre made of self-portraits in which characters and  situations celebrate and represent the contradictions, the worries and the interpersonal relationships in our time, the daily routine and its parody, the eroticism, the sex, the horrors of the war,  the social contrasts,  the political contraposition, the myth of the artist, the cult of personality and the death chase each other in the vanity of the photographic pose.
