"My photography is an expression of myself, an extension of my being in this world. It´s a more genuine reflection of my thoughts and my emotions, transformed into images. They are a way to express the way I feel and interpret the world around me, and therefore they are the purest expression of me ... if you want to know more about me, you can see my pictures and find much of what I am.
