“My photographic practice is all about gesture: making magical truths visible to others by means beyond the intellect. Photography has always been a mystical experience for me: strange situations and wonderful people appear, inexplicable things happen to me and my camera. It is a constant search that keeps surprising me every day.
At the moment, I am particularly interested in the textures and haptic qualities of image”
