As a photographer and a visual artist, I make use of the photographic medium in its quality as tool and support and turn it into a plastic element in its own right.

As a photographer and a visual artist, I make use of the photographic medium in its quality as tool and support and turn it into a plastic element in its own right. While photography has always been a starting point with me, I incorporate into it other contemporary practices and processes, so that it acquires volume, becoming the base of large sculptural assemblies.

Be they two-dimensional photographs or three-dimensional, my works always deploys narratively.

Staged scenes, photographic and plastic compositions, thus give rise to life stories that displace and distort the organic and figurative elements of reality. Manipulation techniques and alterations of the support allow me to get in closest touch with reality while, paradoxically, going the way of fiction.
Exploring a fantastic imagery in the tones of humour and self-mockery allows me to set up a healthy interplay between, on the one hand, realism, the political, conventions and genres, and, on the other hand, the fantastic, the anomalous and the exceptional.

Mutant, strange, the hybrid figures of those stories told in images question the issues associated with identity, calling into question social and cultural stereotypes.
