DOCUMENTARY

SAM PROJECT

The photos depict scenarios with constructions, in which the human being is not present (only their traces) together with elements linked to nature: water, light, plant of mezcal, butterfly or snow. This simbolism, the connection between us, what we create and nature, might be the path to change our point of view, a more beautiful one.

Moreover, I intend to move towards the idea of democratization of the figure of artist and the
embrace of new technologies. How they shape the way we produce and consume images, as well as the possibilities of expression they offer us.

This serie is not a statement but an attempt for a visual conversation with the viewer.

SURROUNDING WOMEN

Women surrounded by their daily life.
Stories told through faces, looks, gestures, occupations, colors, clothes, traditions and spaces that surround the women of India. A study on daily life that reflects the social castes, where women have to face many and different obstacles that are presented to them in life, for the simple fact of belonging to the female sex
India, arguably, is the worst G-20 country to be a woman. A country based on the system of patriarchy, where castes divide society, with no close possibility of reconciliation. The role of women continues to be devalued, despite the different laws that recognize the equality of sex

METAMORPHOSE

Deified humans, humanized gods.

An eye observes a dancing female body.
Captured snapshots generate mythological images reflected in a mirror.
Gods and demons engendered in the female body in movement,
with the beats generated by the rhythm of electronic music

"Sunt,..., quorum Forma semel mota est, et in hoc renovamine mansit.
Sunt, quibus in plures jus est transire figuras,..."
Metamorphoseon, Ovidii Nasonis

"There are,(...), beings whose form have changed, and continued under that alteration.
Others have the privelege of assuming various shapes,(...)"
