My philosophy for photography

My Filosofy

Even when it seems that nothing fits a photographic frame I will take my camera wherever I go.


I was in the last days of the photography course at La Obra Fotografos Institute and I did not know what kind of photography I liked, of course, I liked portrait photography but, I was not satisfied just taking pictures of faces of people without a context to place me in their lives, or to take the lives of those people to those who could appreciate those photographs.

I've never seen anything like it before, maybe I was a bit ignorant in urban photography, until I saw the photographic work of Sebastiao Salgado. I fell in love when I saw it. Below I leave one of the shots that I love most of his work.

Soon I realized that his photos had that something that was missing from my shots and then I went out with my camera and although the day did not seem to want to give me a frame when I least expected it, I found this.

Rreally felt that I was reborn.

I know, I can not reach the photos of Master Sebastiao left, but after trying so much one thing and another, I finally found what I like.

I do not pretend that my photos are taken as photojournalism or documentary, I just want to capture as artistically as possible the story that would be lost if I were not there.

I hope that my photos tell stories of my country for the world, and for that reason I want to do it professionally but in a very subjective way, not pretending to copy a contemporary photographic style, only that the stories are transmitted from my perspective.
