“I really understood what photography was for me during the years I spent in Ireland: it is not only a professional and continuous research, but it is also a philosophy of life, a way of seeing things from a different point of view. I’ve always been attracted to this art since the age of 10 when I observed the starry sky with wonder and it wasn’t enough for me, because I wanted to ‘capture’ what I saw, I wanted to go further. It has always fascinated me to photograph nature and the works of man in all its forms such as: the beauty of nature, the perfection and power of how trees manage to grow, the majesty of the ocean and its waves, the woods, the rocks of the mountains with their incredible panoramas, the mystery that hides behind a glance, the emotions of the human being and the contrast that is created between nature and man, whether positive or negative.
In fact, what I continually look for in my photography is the harmony between the two, as if my photographic art itself manages to harmonize what at first glance, in the contrast between nature and man, is not. This is what I look for in my photographs. I could say in a nutshell that my camera is the extension of my soul.”
It has always inspired me to photograph everything that fascinated me like beauty, the emotions and the mystery behind a glance. “
