I like seeing how people live, how they are transformed by and transform space, their habits, their thoughts. I concern myself with everything that happens or has happened in my country, I like to reflect on these changes positive or negative, because I'm from here, I live here spatially, culturally and spiritually and I know what happens daily. I also like to explore the ways of looking at life, I like to capture those beautiful moments that pass that nobody notices, I like to tell what happens to me or what I do not want to happen to me. I want to make sure people do not forget, that they appreciate small things and learn about their reality. I am passionate to express all of this in the most beautiful, peaceful and thoughtful way that I can. A photograph can do everything, can tell it all. They touch the soul, make you think, fill you with happiness or sadness, they fill you with passion.
In my 20 years of life I have discovered that one of the things that most fulfills me is a good photo and I want my pictures to have the same effect when people look at, take in, feel and think about my own photos, I want them to make people smile, cry, think, live, love - as I do when I do take them.
