My approach is all about material, substance, and close to analogue.

Photography is a type of writing, with light.

The process of knowing the world and people is through the light and written words. Starting point of my artistic research is the human being; his/her feelings and the society, which are expressed through an approach where image-signs and writing are central.

Mine are images that go beyond the purely aesthetic and compositional research, but rather try to delve into deeper meanings, strongly linked to contemporary culture; our time and social fabric can be defined as the era of the image. Time is essential. We live in an era where everything occurs in a short span of time, you just need a click: from pre cooked food to any kind of online shopping. Another important aspect is the crisis, which Europe and especially my country is going through: not only an economic turn but also of its values.

The aim is to collect through a visual photographic experiment essence and contradictions which are behind our so- ciety and era: urban, inevitably digital and nostalgically analogue. To succeed in this I try to find a place on the edges by undertaking an evolving and open creative process. The value dwells in the lack of exactness and where the path of investigation and research is as important as the result.
