For me, photography is a tool that allows to observe the world and to show, in a frame, only one part of it. Whenever you take a picture, you make a choice, you decide to pick out a fragment of reality, the fragment most relevant to you, to what you wish to express.
My method is to merge in the circumstances and places I decide to photograph, breathing their atmosphere, listening to their heart beat. When I take a picture, I switch into a receptive mode, keeping away from any manipulation of the circumstances in order to get what I want. I let situations evolve by themselves, ready to capture the essential.
The recurrent subject of my photos is the human being, how he or she lives and decides to relate, and what he or she feels while doing so. I worked with street artists, indigenous people, peasants, fishermen, political activists and guerrilla fighters. I am particularly attracted by people looking for and finding ways to live different from the models currently offered by our society.
