Artist Statement:

This series of images shows a personal manner of escaping from what I believe about love, human relationships, religion and inner hidden feelings. These photographs aim to capture the moment before I hear the “crack”, the moment before all your beliefs break down in many pieces.

Practice Statement: How does photographing on film (or using your material photographic process of predilection) inform your artistic practice?

Working with film gives you the chance to think more and press the shutter less. So, I believe that you lose in quantity but you gain in quality. That’s the reason why I work with a Medium format camera (6×4,5), always loving the anxiety to see the result.
