I use photography as a means of self-expression. It involves passion and enthusiasm. Besides shooting stage, since 2010 I have photographed city streets such as Rio de Janeiro and New York. It is in the midst of these cities’ chaos I find the peace I need for shooting everyday life.
I shoot as a means to interact with people, and to express my interpretation of their world. I use photography as a medium in order to better express my feelings and point of view.
I shoot in both color and black and white. In black and white, I find myself. It shows a sensitive and interference-free world. I see color in monochrome images, filled with texture, volume, and different tones of gray.
Robert Frank and Richard Sandler influence me. I am drawn to artists that photograph with a minimalist sensibility in contrast to what is more often seen in society. I immerse myself in an interior world to inspire and document a story that would otherwise be lost in a blink if there were not black boxes.
