As a commercial photographer I feel lucky to live in a place where I enjoy my subjects, which over time have gone back and forth from still life to fashion and celebrities, mostly in the name of advertising.
Once outside of that world, full of pretty locations, objects of desire and privileged people I feel the need to unveil my fascination with a parallel universe where the aggressive and sometimes destructive behavior of people can mirror the one emanating from nature’s most treacherous elements.
The result is at times a drastic mutilation of our visual landscape that I find both graphically beautiful and emotionally disturbing.
Ironically this metamorphosis enables me to turn fleeting images of fleeting moments about to vanish to oblivion into photo essays portraying various manifestations of violence.
The last breath, snapshots before nothingness are my treasures.
See it. Shoot it. It’s now or never.
