ARTIST STATEMENT

To me as a photographer, the act of taking pictures is to tell stories with images that somehow represent a moment on our life. My style follows the documentary photography way.

Every single photograph I take said something related with reality and few times maybe with my fantasy.

My photography does tell story even went sometimes they also ask a question, as I explore both public and private environments.
