The creation process is for me a way of initiation, of approaching to the Mystery, to what is essential and at the same time transcends the human being. My images are the testimony of this process of search, transformation and encounter. The rite of the creative process brings me back to my natural state of well-being. "Gozology" is an invented term that I use to refer to the sense and creative pronouncement from joy, to a type of creation that emerges from this joyful state.

The nakedness in my images is a symbol of transparency, of purity, back to the origin, to a paradisiacal and harmonic state, optimal for living and creating.

Photography is my main means of expression. I am not interested in photographing the moment, but documenting interior states; visions, dreams, vivid and experienced perceptions. My photography is felt, pre-felt, pre-pared, since there is a previous preparation, on a physical, emotional, psychic and spiritual level.

Through the photographic images I believe and I re-create myself. And I create because I believe in the regenerating and healing power of images. That is why my “attempt” is to create images from love, joy, enthusiasm, so that, in turn, they have the power to dilate the heart, expand the vision of those who contemplate them and point the way back to our true being.
