Photographs appear before my eyes as a new reality. An evocative or transgressive reality of time, sometimes a simple dream. Photograph to document, communicate, remember or transcend. Enjoy with it the pleasure of idealizing, or capturing beauty. Photography is for me the reality trapped in the mirror in which I see and see myself. That is why I capture moments to certify my presence and even my own existence. It is in that mirror where I look for the answers and, on occasions, it returns me the look and it moves me".
