His photographs upon material are images that abstract themselves in small details of few millimeters, enlarged at the excess, where photography abdicate its representation role to become something else. Looking for the existing beauty in the minute reality that surrounds us.
"An intimate, minimalistic look which explores the nature of the material in its purest and most essential aesthetics. Details almost invisible to the naked eye, like inner landscapes coming to life with shades, imperfections, imperceptible tracings and secrets: like those of the human mind."
