Being an introverted person since my young age, photography has always been a way for me to express myself, to express my emotions, a way to convey messages. Photography allows me to feel good, to feel in agreement with myself. What I like most of all is to transmit emotions and feelings to the people around me. I like that because it is a sharing between me and those who contemplate my works. For me being an artist is being able to transmit emotions to others, it is at this moment that my art comes to life."
