THE BEAUTY OF IMPERFECTION
Photography allows me to express myself, to escape, to understand, to explain, and most importantly it allows me to feel alive. Photography is something very deep and personal.
I find that there is something rawer and more alive in the use of film. Something you cannot find in digital. The whole process of using film makes photography more meaningful, from the camera to the photo development.
The beauty of imperfection is the essence of my art. Photography is about stopping time, to capture emotions and store them in a bag that will follow you for the rest of your life.
I would like to capture a moment whose life will prevail through time.
When I see a scene that I want to photograph, I just know,
I feel the balance within the scene
And I take that picture
I try not to overthink or over complicate things
I am drawn to the colors and the way that they render on the film
And how they interact within a given scene, a certain moment
It’s just different, it’s direct, it’s physical
There’s a tangible quality that negative provides and digital cannot
With 36 frames, you have to
Slow down, breath, open your eyes
Watch the world pass you by
Wait for that moment and go for it
