Art is not something I enjoy, it is not something that makes me feel good. Art, photography in particular, is a tool that satisfies my need to throw out ideas and feelings about the world. I have a commitment to art, not by vocation but by compulsion, I can’t do anything else, even if I wanted to. A need to express and question the opinions of life and the world.

My projects revolves around the idea of ​​time, the concept of light and space, reflecting on the way in which understanding these changes the perception in many aspects of social life, interpersonal and loving life. These themes usually are related to memory, memories, identity and our territory. I look for inspiration in personal experiences, relating it to the world and the community to generate dissent, change and to create more questions than answers. My interest in these topics is not only limited to photography, but also leads me to mix techniques and conceive my work in a totally interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary way.


In this virtual residence Together Apart: Future I had enough free space and at the same time guided to launch a series of ideas around the Future concept. In addition, it is shared with a group of selected artists who promote and motivate their own ideas and those of others.
