My images - too selective to be a documentary in the normal sense - are visual manifestations of the life around me. My life and my photographs, both often ironic, sometimes funny, at times raw and every so often nostalgic, interact and influence each other.
Life pushes us to deal with feelings and situations, wanted or unwanted and so I shoot life with everything that life involves: happiness, loneliness, boredom, passion, frustration, love, sex, sadness, joy and death. It's a coexistence of ordinary duties and special moments.
I work mainly in color using digital images, regular SLR and disposable cameras, computer colorized black and white negatives, videos, polaroids, vintage family prints, among others. Some of images are snapshots while others are heavily staged and retouched. The way I feel determines which method I use, and that decision defines the way I perceive my surroundings. I like to use my instinct. It's a matter of spontaneity and intuitive thinking.
