When I start asking myself who I am? and what I do look for in my photos?, mistake and randomness appear clearly as the most important pillars in discovering my own way of looking through the camera. Getting to define myself makes me realize that I am interested in certain aspects that are around me, that catch my attention and makes me have a personal vision of reality.
As human memories, which are conformed with different pieces from lived moments, I recollect and select, in each photographic series, the images that will become part of my memory. Maybe this is the reason why a certain air of surrealism is evolving my images and there are poetic connections between them. I like to think that my work places among dream and reality, where everything is possible and the viewer never knows what it’s true or false.
Sometimes we don’t know why but we have feelings we cannot describe with words, sometimes even we cannot decide if they are positive or negative feelings. It happens to me with photography, I don’t know why something catches my attention, but while the doubt is still there my search is not going to finish. I shoot by instinct, because there is something out there that moves me and makes me wonder on the sense of life and the hidden nature of human being.
PUSH YOUR BOUNDARIES
My working method is based on building a personal imaginary, drawn from reality, by using a concrete language that helps me to express my most primordial fears, phobias, desires, drives and concerns. Firstly, I photograph and then I analyze what feelings I am experimenting on the moment. Secondly, I build up a story based on real feeling and experiences, although often that story I’ve imagined becomes something completely different and, even, autonomous.
My aesthetic does not have rules or limits, it has been labeled like a «deliberately aesthetic of ugliness», though I do not like to frame my work in a concrete style. But it is true that I find more interesting ugliness than beauty, probably because ugliness is related to the decadence, the weirdness or other concepts I like to work with.
