  • “I use photography as a medium and as a tool, to “access” and give expression to the “inaccessible”: that which lives in the realm of light, inside and outside matter, in between matter… places with infinite possibilities, timeless realities that co-exist with ours. Art as an ever-growing entity from the invisible world has used throughout time different mediums and instruments (artists) to develop itself according to what is available at every given period. The painting-like expression of my photographs also aims to connect the underlying eternal presence of the ever-evolving-Art-Essence, from the work of the old fine art masters -which found its expression at that time through painting- to our contemporary ways. The expression accomplished in each photograph is a direct experience at the moment of capturing the image according to the energies of the given time and place. There is no post-production or lab work involved after the shooting. What you see is how the pictures were taken. I encompass this study/contemplation by the name of “Beyond this visible world”, to give me ample flexibility and freedom to go forward or retract without limit of expression regardless of the current boundaries that the medium can present.”
