ABOUT            OVERVIEW

COMMISSIONS            PERSONAL


I observe human gestures and their interaction with the places that they inhabit. I capture spaces filled with the trace and emotion of human presence. The images combine, in certain way, the appropriation of places and apprehended realities that become stories about rooms and matter enclosing emotional and cultural record. The familiarity arouses through the nostalgic and the content of loneliness in the forgotten.



The walls and the objects confine the vestige and come alive interacting within the absence of witnesses, becoming the essence of the site they occupy. My lens serves as a medium to feel the sensibility of fields where life has been lived. The photographs are evidence of the texture of the space and the experience of being somewhere where objects have been testimony of time and beholders of memories.
