I have been working in photography since I was twenty years old. From my beginnings the human figure was my object of observation. My work addresses the human body in all its meanings. I question her from inside and outside, from the perfect and imperfect, the mutilated, from the sustained gaze and avoids it. I believe that without him, the photographed subject, my photos would not exist. Without the focus stopped on him, without him stopping the focus, there would only be an empty, cloudy place, a “dull” background.
