Cities and how we relate to them are a predominant theme in my work. My interest is mainly about the perception and awareness of how urban environment affects the way we see the cities, how it can determine dwellers behaviors, and the differences between public and private spaces.

Photography is my main medium and I like to use it to think about aspects of everyday life that the banality of habits made us forget that we might question. Photography for me is not only a way of seeing but mostly a reminder that the view is always partial, that it can always be opposed, that there is much more outside the frame.

Besides photography, I have also worked with video, installation and artist's books. I understand that each project has its own needs so the medium is not a limitation, it can always be changed. The influence of my previous education in Graphic Design is quite apparent in my productions, both by formal care in the compositions, as by the need to clearly communicate the concepts I am working with.
