Photography and politics are my two focal points, my pillars: photographic projects express my vision, often in a surreal way and aiming for beauty. In this I feel special and consistent.
A better world is possible, it depends on all of us and I try to convey it through images.
Sometimes I think about the shots that I have not taken, but never about future ones ... I keep looking inside myself, as I always have.

It is one of the seven works on the elements of nature, flora, printed in negative directly on aluminum. In these images, which belong to the Winter series, are trees cut and ready to be distributed and transformed. The use of surreal expression through negative inversion is a technique that the artist began to use in 2008 to reinforce the concept he wants to express: increasing the level of awareness on the consequences of our actions on the environmental issue.
