I would like to say that my love for photography started when I got as a present my first reflex camera, but no. On exchange when I was about eight years old, my sister's godfather gave me as a present the Kodak Instamatic 110 that immortalized my memories, my trips and my childhood. I was not born in the digital era, when I was little people still listen to cassettes (and record music from the radio on them) and videos still were recorded on film. So film as much as every analogic thing were very present in my life.

Maybe when I was young I justed wanted to have some memories on a paper. Nowadays photography for me is about observation but also it means to calm down my eternal anxiety from inside. 

I have "clicked" when I started to register people on my photographs, travelling. People are what I like most about making photographs. I do not know if this has a psycological meaning but is true that I feel a huge feeling of brotherhood with the world. I think I get in communion with it through photography and when I talk and communicate with the people of a specific country or a specific region.

I have a deep interest in people, their stories, even though sometimes all of that is just reduced to a click. But what people want to read in each photography depends on theirselves. I feel satisfied if the people who see my photographs travel with me while seeing them. 

Sometimes I wonder where does this passion come from? And an image appears suddenly, a photograph: my grandfather and I, walking peacefully, about twenty one years ago, and hanging on my grandfather's neck from a strap, an old kodak camera.
