Through my images I try to represent a different way of seeing and perceiving the world invoking the discontinuous and the rupture as symbols of our century. While highlighting my photos with radical distortions in multiple layers I seek not only to represent the real, but also to extend the idea of fragmentation to the “reality” suggesting an experience of unfolding the time.
Having as a reference the cinematic editing techniques of Sergei Eisenstein and Walter Ruttmann, the multi-layered exhibitions spaces done by El Lissitsky and the images produced by Edward Steichen and Man Ray I use the digital technology present in our days to question the originality of digital photography. Imaging my photos as canvas and having the multiple exposure as my main technique I produce my final images all in the digital camera without the use of Photoshop.
