Method & Reason
Where does photography end and art begins? The illusion arises from that ambiguity and I found myself setting a course that explores the potential of photography as a work of art that sees itself as a timeless aesthetic.
It is so much more than to capture and record a moment: there is a whole process that relies in the crucial decision of a plan that captures my attention and that, at the same time, allows me to feel that I can create something with it.
Pictures are born, at first, from this initial decision, a deliberate prelude to chaos, which reveals itself in a second phase where I try to turn those pictures into something as intrinsically connected to who I am as possible. It's a search for beauty that has no qualms about being dark, dirty and ugly when necessary.
Still life objects seem alive, animals look more than what they really are, human beings come to seem unreal. Sometimes, it all seems like a painting and we start questioning ourselves about whether or not we are looking at a photograph - and that is one of the goals I try to achieve, along with blurring the borders between general notions of photography and reality.
