PHOTOGRAPHY

I started argentic photography when I was a teenager.

Later as a consultant I used digital image work to create communication medium.

Since 2005 cell phones opened a new way to develop a different creative approach. The image quality could not compete with reflex cameras, but this limitation encouraged me to explore a new creative language, less focused on technical perfection and more inspired by roaming, playing with noisy images as a material grain.

Nature and urban scenes inspire me most. I like to question the ambivalence of reality in beings and things. I like to shake up the usual points of reference, allowing hidden beauty and meaning to appear.

Catching the essence of multiform Present, letting the eye shape its own ever changing reality, revealing the infinite shapes, sensations, emotions, feelings Consciousness can create in a single moment are part of my work as a spiritual artist.

I like to play with elements like framing, perspective, unusual shooting angles, altered perception, movement, contrasts, light and reflections.

DIGITAL COMPOSITION

I often use my shots mixed with other visual samples as a raw material to manipulate, create some abstract, surrealistic, oneiric compositions, numeric paintings that play with reality and fantasy.

I play with forms and symbols to allow perceive reality from a different point of view, letting observers be designers of their own visual reality, explore different meanings, stimulating imagination, reverie and meditation. Or creating surprise with a touch of humor.
