Ever since I was a little kid I’ve been passionate about the idea of traveling, and my love of photography has a lot to do with it.
It’s been with me 24/7 from the moment I embarked on this quest of the image and
its ability to communicate, some twenty years ago.
Above all, I value the experience, the act of shooting, it’s become a necessity.
Photography is like a close encounter with the things I like best about me;
it puts me in orbit, so to speak.
My working process is based on intuition, with just basic planning (sometimes not even that). The concept is usually a direct result from experience.
I’m a firm believer in the power of the image, as opposed to the overabundance of discourse.
I was always interested in documenting my particular vision of reality,
though as of late I’v been broadening my horizons to include that which is barely perceived, the realms of illusion and the sublime.
Mist and Walk two of my latest works, are a clear example of that new approach.
