Contemporary Art Gallery
Since I was young, attracted by nature and extreme sports, it was skateboarding that connected me to photography. In 2006, I started to capture images of the manoeuvres, with my Sony print-and-shoot 1.3mp, to my most adventurous friends.
Later, I bought my first digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera and started a learning process that I was never able to abandon. Early on, I realized that the digital world was not able to show my feelings through photography or give me the basic knowledge of how an image turns into paper. Thus, I moved to the analogue world that introduced me to several renowned photographers, such as Ansel Adams, Edward and Brett Weston, Clyde Butcher, Ruth Bernhard, among others.
Nowadays I consider myself an amateur photographer with a special taste for black and white. I focus on portrait photography, but mainly on landscape where nature shows a wide range of scenarios in harmony with different types of light. The creation of a photograph on paper, from capturing an image to developing the roll and enlarging it, is a process that requires enormous effort, but the final art is one that tells us a story through a simple image.
