I am a multidisciplinary photographer, whose experience ranges from fashion photography to advertising, from documentary to experimental darkroom techniques.
I believe that it’s necessary to deeply understand a subject before being able to photograph it. Before even opening the lens cap of my camera, you’ll find me sharing old pictures of my grandparents with those I want to take pictures of, drinking tea with them or asking about their childhood.
