Inspired by the Great Masters of painting, I succeeded in manipulating light at my will to create atmospheres that have little in common with current conventional images.
Both the context as well as the adult human figure became a long-time cornerstone during my professional development though my obsession with capturing an unfiltered, social-labelling free look made me move a game piece and, at that moment, I started working with children realizing that my work required veering the steering wheel to focus solely and exclusively on child portraits.
Since then, I’m completely dedicated to child portraits that tell the story of fiction characters having children as their protagonists thus creating the best self-styling images within a unique context and staging among timelessness, pictorialness and surrealism that transport to another world where your child is the main character of his/her story.
Everything goes round a fiction character who tells us, through images, his/her adventure in a surreal world.
Makeup and hairdressing are vital to perfectly characterize our story’s protagonist.
