When I was a child, I really liked going through the family album seeing the photos my dad took of my mom and of several places. I liked to imagine what pushed my dad to take those pictures, also enjoyed seeing how things looked so different from the years that were running. I dearly believe that that’s how I started loving photography.
So I started shooting when I was around 14yo. My first experience was with a Kodak 110 that I left behind when they stopped selling that film around here, and around two years later I was given my first digital camera.
It was always about exploring the things around me and documenting things for myself as a way to treasure memories, people and places. Today is still a mix of documentation and appreciation of life but I’m always playing with new perspectives while understanding the core of my motivations and desires beyond my background.
Shooting is usually a solitary exercise of introspection and sometimes an act of irreverence. I have work that you might call commercial but is the less; my personal search is full of nature, abandonment, nudity and death. Those are the things that, at the end of the day, move me.
There are lots of things that I want to share with others through my personal photography and with the rest of my work so it's awesome that you made it this far, kudos!
I don’t know where life will take me, but I know I’ll always have a camera with me.
