Sometimes I need to express myself with photographs that come  from my inner  deepest feelings. When you do that, your images will speak for themselves .Viewers can imagine how you deep inside you.

There is no need  to die young to show to the viewers that you’re an  honest artist.

“During the whole of your life you look for a visual narrative language to arrive at some unknown point where you discover that the most important thing is being honest with yourself at the moment of capturing your images.”

Through out the history of photography there have existed many honest professionals, simple men that have given us photographs that still today are an important part of our collective visual memory. Many others taught us how to build our dreams.
It all depends on us, what we want to obtain in our own lives, and how to reach our goals.

Some people believe that good marketing or being a showman is necessary to be known in the  art market. I think that nowadays it’s a good strategy to obtain money and become a clown of the system.  I have in my mind photographers that are only a famous mark, and others that are important for the collective memory of people, they have been working in silence offering their sincere sensitivity to give us the best of themselves to others.

These last ones are the ones we we’ll never forget.
