ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
In my work I investigate the contrasting sensations of life, of love/lovelessness, of common walking and in a more candid way, of the workers' struggle covered with those glimpses of modernity sometimes fictitious and other times not obtained. The street was my school to a great extent and photography was a logical consequence to express myself from my memories, what I observed, what I lived and what I learned through people, history, books and poetry books.
"Sijifredo", is a work of visual storytelling that rescues one of the most striking aspects of my Father (the title of the work carries his second name), which was to build parallels between episodes of his history with what he saw in a current moment of his life. This visual journey, through its color atmospheres, explores the human desire to have the possibility of staying one more day with that loved one who has died, but who has left a deep mark in terms of values and spirituality, without selfishness and without any emotional debt at the time of his departure.
