I often say that photography found me, and not the other way around. 

Self-portrait, 2021.

I was always a bit of a voyeur child. I liked to peek into the neighbors' windows with my binoculars and I would grab my dad's Nikon without him knowing to take pictures. In my youth, I had Polaroids, Kodaks, Lomos and Canons.  Luckily, I was born during the transition from analog to digital, which taught me to value both formats.
Honestly, I never thought I would work professionally with photography. For many years it was a hobby, and little by little it evolved into a profession. 
At the university, I studied sociology because I have always been interested in understanding human beings. Whether in social or individual spheres, this curiosity has turned me into a born observer. Photography was the tool I found to portray them and also to express myself in my own individuality. Since I can't draw with ink and paper, I learned to draw with light. 
Whether photographing events or portraits, my aim is to go in search of that which seems genuine. Emotions, gestures, a beautiful detail. Photography is an art to me; the art of the constant search for the hidden, or what is not easily seen.
