  • Since a lot of years I’m wondering why I take pictures. I could say that is because I love cameras, not all of them, but the fully manual, where the exposure is controlled by me, or because, having no talent for music, drawing, sculpture, etc, taking photos was something I can dominate and that allows me to express myself. These reasons and more, I have had in my head at some point in all these years. However the reality is much simpler, I take pictures because I love taking pictures.

    And this leads to a second question: what do I want to express with my pictures? Nothing, they don’t express anything and I do not want them to express anything.I love taking pictures of things I like, move me or make me think. When I see something, all I do is try to represent it in an aesthetically pleasing and then, whatever comes out.
