My work as photographer acts as a continuous exploration of human identity. The constant interaction with mass media and social networking have led to the birth of new visual prototypes: plastic molds of identity merely reduced to a consumption human product.
My photographs try to recover that essence which defines the individual above these sociocultural molds; they are a mirror that will make us remind, question and recognize through a sense of otherness, who we are, the ones that gaze at the images.
In photography I have found the ideal tool for this exploration, due to its intrinsic ability to register moments, shaped by my own social baggage. Traveling has provided me the necessary detachment from my own daily environment, thus allowing me to comprehend the different idiosyncratic filters that interact with the cultures I visit.
