Photography is a way of life. The photographer lives with the passion
of the next picture in his mind and dreams with the moment of taking
it when he closes his eyes. That is why I never cease being a photographer,
I simply let my camera rest.
My artistic work intends to reflect what I feel with every image
and transmit it in each of them. This way I try to reach the observer
with my interpretation of the soul of the image, as if a photograph
can make someone stop breathing, it is then when it becomes transcendental,
unforgettable. This is why the artistic composition of my works
belongs to a secondary position, being just the feeling the protagonist
In relation to nudes, I work with amateur models. They pose for
me because they love art and they do it with passion in each photography
session, facing drawbacks, long delays, hours travelling, cold or
heat at times or just long walks some other times. They are the
other part of this at of mine, since they give passion and effort
in each photograph.
My group of models is each time more numerous, since there are each
time more people that like my art and would like to sit in front
of my camera. The new models, before a first try, I almost always
incorporate them in my works.
To make photography a way of life is a hard decision that must be
taken at heart, I refer to the ultimate truth on photography uttered
by the master Henry Cartier-Bresson: "photography is to let,
in the same line of fire the mind, the eye, and the heart."
