As a photographer, I am a witness to my time, I am a presence, a creator and an author. It my intention to make those who view my images aware of that reality, to transform them in present to witnesses of my time.

When I do photography, I see how the light, in its deadly battle darkness, describe lines, textures, points, contrasts, colures, spaces, environments, shapes and figures that reveal the human condition, showing the abnormal within the normal, the especial in the simple, the surprising of the quotidian, the deep significance in the apparently insignificant.

I do documentary photography, as an act of love and solidarity with those most vulnerable on society. I think that photography as the moral obligation to help raise individual and collective awareness about the need of social, political and economic paradigm shift, in which the human being should take the place that money currently occupies as the central axis of our values.
