STATEMENT

I’m attracted for the daily and routinary happenings. I’m in an ongoing exploration of stories and daily moments that awake a certain level of interest in my mind. I try to give such moments an important place in history to those unseen daily moments of urban life.
I consider myself as a Social Photographer, and due to photographic styles such as documentary, street and journalistic photography, I have managed to capture the ordinary in a way that makes people interested in the social contexts.

The final purpose of crafting such images, is to make people conscious about the situations that happen right in front of their eyes. I’m just trying to awake empathy for the ordinary, and not to let ourselves be trapped to the full in our own worlds.

PURPOSE

My major income happens thanks to commercial and creative writing for several purposes of what various businesses need. My deepest wish is to focus more in Photography itself and Photography oriented literature (from articles to academic critique). By shutting off the commercial texts, I'll be able to have more time to work on the things I love most, but I need your help to balance the benefit cost of doing so. My main goals of this new relationship with you are to give you the following:

MEANINGFUL STORIES

I want to focus more in creating images that tell meaningful stories, and they require getting outside from my comfort zone, but scouting for these stories carry some expenses. Social Photography for me is a unique blend of Street Candid Photography, Street Portrait Photography, Documentary Photography and of course, Photojournalism. Even though they can tell powerful stories, these images rarely get a commercial demand. I've been detaching from the commercial imagery because I'm convinced that these stories are the one that matter the most.

OWN VISION

I love to share my vision with photographers and not photographers as well. Thanks to the lack of Social Photography for commercial purposes, I've been able to share  my passion for this photography niche through article and critique writing. I'm a committed writer that loves to craft articles that I humbly believe, can help people  in getting more passionate about the art of photography. I also love writing academic critiques of photographs that go way beyond the traditional appreciation anyone can get in the dynamics of Social Media.

PHOTOBOOKS

Photobooks are the summit for many photographers. Seeing the work printed is an experience that can't be mimicked by screens, because the tangible nature of the book is what feels great. Being able to showcase my social photography in high quality photobooks is a dream that I find possible thanks to crowdfunding.
