"Return to Paradise" series, making a little reference to this time of the Anthropocene.
This series works as a meeting point, to rethink and overcome this separation of humanity with the environment, to make us reflect on the climatic urgency, generate environmental awareness and responsibility with the planet that contains us and we inhabit.
Today photography is my way for me to communicate how I feel without words. When I’m out shooting things seem simple again, time slows down and the world around me gets quiet. It’s then that I’m able to focus in a manner that allows me to connect with my imagination. Those moments are how I’ve learned to ‘still my soul’; it’s my happy place.
I believe that one of the aspects I love the most about this form of artistic expression is the fact that everyone can get close to it, you don't need many tools, paper, hands, a lot of patience and determination are enough, because without it, it is impossible to reach the final goal
Real life models offer me the opportunity to see nature as it is, not as I think it is. Creating solely from the mind is very limiting.
I started my affection towards anyone or anything that was not accepted by the mainstream. So that’s why my quest was not just as an artist trying to look for some nonconventional (materials) to make art, it was more like finding a hope for the one’s that has been rejected.
