Artist Statement

My photography is a surreal and subjective anthropological documentation of our world. Our senses are mediated by our emotions, which tells us that are point of view of this life is not logical, but sentimental. With my work I seek to externalize my inner thoughts, feelings and fears by transforming scenes and subjects through manipulation of light, which be it natural or artificial, is a tool that is at the core of my creative drive. My photographs are all united to a certain mood and are about transferring emotion rather than telling a narrative story, so the viewer gets as close as possible to experience and feel the world through my eyes.
