Photography is a passion for me...I observe life through a viewfinder.
My feelings, my dreams, my desires ... everything is reflected in my photographic works.
I like to create "other realities", sometimes necessary for survival.
I do not pretend anything...I just try to touch the feelings of the viewer.
The reader of the work always has the last word...I hope you like my work.
 
 In recognition of my work, I have won numerous awards nationally and internationally.
All are important to me every achievement, in its time, has had a very particular and revealing meaning in relation to the evolution of my own photographic technique.

 My passion for photography goes back to childhood; He started at 9 years old.
 First it was a wonderful discovery; a curiosity ... Later, a great adventure; a personal and professional challenge ... And always: a form of fun and evasion.
 For many years, photography, for me, is a form of liberation. I started using imaging software around 1992 ... since then I have experienced all the tools that new technologies have made available to me.
 As a personal project, I dedicate myself to research in creative photography since 2000.
 Photography is a wonderful visual architectural medium that helps us build our own life.
 We are only what we can remember ... when there are no memories, we must invent them, build them.
 I invent my memories, with scenes that correspond to the lives of other people ... and I make them mine.
 Then I work continuously in a kind of "architecture of time" ...
