Art, in all its manifestations,
from music to cinema, but also
going through painting,
literature, comic and photography.
Has become the way I can unleash
my creativity and imagination in
order to create new worlds,
besides it’s the path to express
my inner world, my feelings,
thoughts and reflections.
Therefore, I have always ensured to experiment, discover and explore new
forms of expression. This is, precisely, what led me to photography. Almost
by chance it crossed my path while I wandered through the illustration
world, and I decided to stay and try, at least for a while.
Eugenio Recuenco, Gregory Crewdson, Bradford Young, Roger Deakins, Hideo
Kojima, Simon Stalenhag or Darius Khondji are some of those who were
responsible for my choice of photography as a way of expression. All these
artists have in common a series of aesthetics reminiscent of other artistic
methods, such as a cinematographic lighting or an excellent pictorial
composition, but above all they express a concept, or a feeling embraced by
an extremely careful artistic sensibility.
As I have previously remarked, there are so many things I would desire to
say and so many ways to express it that it’s hard for me to limit my job
into a single field, however when I became aware -through great figures such
as the mentioned above- of a technique that would open the doors into an
infinite world of creation, it was a magical discovery.
In some of my works I have favored the use of natural light within wide and diaphanous
landscapes, in this sense nature is also presented as a continuous element
of my work due to my origin, with long shots where the figure is static and
located in the composition’s center insinuating the immensity of Nature and
the freedom and loneliness within it.
