About me

I like taking photos of children and people on the street. I think Diane Arbus once said "our whole guise is like giving a sign to the world to think of us in a certain way but there's a point between what you want people to know about you and what you can't help people knowing about you". A photograph that is forced does not interest me. 

That is why I find myself drawn to documentary style photography. Let it be family photojournalism or street photography. In his mater piece, The Decisive Moment, Cartier-Bresson put it perfectly: "of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes forever the precise and transitory instant". We need ask ourselves why we should let anything other than the precise and transitory instant that shows us who we are to be fixed?

I will not take photos of babies wrapped in a blanket and put in a basket. I feel those kind of photos are meaningless. They have nothing to do with the little person they already are: all their wonderful characters and their little perfect imperfections. To me, that is the most beautiful thing worthy of preserving. 

My photos were not pixel perfect and half of them were taken with traditional film. I feel the imperfection in the medium echo more with the reality that I try to capture. If you feel the same about family photography and want to capture the decisive moment of your loved ones. Drop me a line.
