Statement

Influenced by visual arts and christian mysticism, I create what I call inverse photography: images that represent an interior state more than an exterior subject. My techniques to obtain my pieces range from straight photography to complex composite work. Using all the available digital tools, I mimic memories and dreams, playing with perspective, time, and colors. Each art work is made out of pictures from real places, put together using imagination and dreams. 

“Beauty will save the world”

— Fedor Dostoyevsky
