His photographic work arises of the reflection regarding an object, a concept, a fact or a text with perceptible social signification to the observer.

His photographs explain the story of an encounter, using a theatrical proposed action and that it is executed by the photographed or by himself. An interaction that is fundamental in his images and that converts the subjects in momentary actors that at the same time reflect a long with the propose initiative.
