A quote from Edward Munch says "No longer shall I paint interiors with men reading and women knitting. I will paint living people who breathe and feel and suffer and love." Artists like him, Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo, are a big influence on the way I approach my work.
A couple of years ago, I watched the movie "The Secret Life Life of Walter Mitty". The images in that movie are exceptional. I feel a connection with the protagonist because I find myself day dreaming maybe as a scape of some aspects of reality that I try to avoid. Doing Photography helps me translate dreams, ideas and concepts into images that I can share with others. Fine art photography allows me to be creative and translate ideas on a visual manner. It allows me to express my own voice and vision and I've discovered that those images can become a powerful tool. Something else that I do is to document activities or events that have an impact in my life and I feel that need to be acknowledge. With the constant technological advancement, it has become an easy task to document what happens around us. Even if it's shooting a wedding, capturing images of places that won't exist any more or grasp a moment that will change an individual's life, I want to be there writing history with my camera.
