Artist Statement

Through an irresistible attraction to aesthetics and a captivating encounter with emotion, I take advantage of both to create knowledge about nature conservation.

My work travels beauty and emotions to wake up and encourage an increasingly aware viewer to preserve and protect the fragile world around us.

Human and animal emotions are agitated and diluted, discovering a vulnerability that was not shown in the classic documentary photography on wildlife.

Impressive animals, but above all animals that impress, tender or shake. Animals whose habitat falters with our lifestyle, and that need to be visible and audible for us to act and preserve the ecosystems of the planet we all inhabit.

If my photos are beautiful, it is because nature is.
