ARTIST'S STATEMENT

As a self-taught street photographer, leaning towards social documentary and storytelling, I believe the camera is an instrument of self-expression and a way to question the world. My interest in photography started in 2019, when I came across the work and writings of Henri Cartier-Bresson. His humanist vision and poetic geometry resonated with my professional architecture background and lead me into other old masters like André Kertész and Robert Frank. I photograph to detach myself from the objective reality of the world. My photographs are black and white, but not the ideas I portray. They are metaphors of themes that haunt me when the camera is down: displacement, alienation, solitude, but also the whimsical, bizarre and unexpected moments of ordinary life.
