Photographer born in 1972
My love for nature has followed me since I remember myself, with its magical force, powerful predators, untouched jungles and captivating stories and fairy tales such as Mowgly and Tarzan.
Photos and films of war between the white man and native american indians fascinated me as a child but was also painful to me seeing the victory of modernization over nature.
This is the very basis of my art today.

While I stay faithful to the beauty and aestetics of art and am also inspired by paintings and cinema, my works are a reflection of my despair over man’s conquest over nature.
So, I photograph documentary and staged scenes depicting my aspirations for humankind and nature … going back to the beginning of time.

PS: All of my works are photography media and not digital art.
