My currently artistic researches are focused in investigation of a complex relationship between human being as a transitory one, and nature as an inevitable presence placed in a habitat which attempt to give and take through their mutual behaviors treating spontaneous subjects from urban spaces and beyond it. My images pretend to set in crises this relationship of habitats trying to discover how they interact against complexities of human behaviour in different relation contexts, whether in a spiritual or visual connection with a dose of sensitivity in social problems. So, sometimes my subjects bring a non-narrative story between images coming from different places and through their subjects insist to determine against an environment which depends by our behaviour and vice versa.
