I take photos on a daily basis; it’s a necessity deep within me which pushes me to do it. I take photos because through photography I learn to see the world around me. I love ‘reading’ the light and playing with the shadows. Not overlooking the simple daily things, even if it is taking pictures of objects or people’s expressions. Seizing the surrealism that emerges, revealing the story which is hidden. What I mostly like is to be out there, sharpening my vision and creating my photographic world.
