Poétic - Statement.
My work involves constructing poetry through photography, and like all poetry, it questions the codes and conventions of the language of its expression.
I refer to the technique I use as direct action shots: I light each scene manually in the dark, using light to create a subjective space that creates a story within the image.
The use of light and color has an artistic, conceptual meaning. Without light and shadow, nothing can be determined. The contrasts between the sudden flashes and darkness accentuate the mystery of mankind, emphasizing our beauty and at times, our own darkness.
