BORN TO SHOOT THE WORLD AROUND ME

I’m a French-Peruvian fine art photographer based in Norway. Nature, urban life, and live music are among the topics that inspire me the most.

I’ve always been amazed by the beauty of nature and cultural heritage. In that sense, I got involved in photography while documenting ecotourism experiences in Peru during 2006.

After working for more than a decade as a sustainable development consultant, I decided to return to school and study photography as a new creative career. Then, I discovered influential artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Ernst Hass, Brett Weston, and Saul Leiter. They still have a significant impact on my aesthetics.

For my awarded project, GAUSTA IN SEASONS, I spent almost ten months (from December 2019 to September 2020) exploring this world-class mountain Norwegian destination. Its second part started in June 2021.

VESTLAND OUTDOORS, my second project in Scandinavia, has been focused on this Norwegian county’s nature and urban life. I started it in October 2020 and lasted until May 2021.

ART STATEMENT

I like observing, in detail, the world around me. So, I found in photography the art medium to share what impresses me the most.

I believe in evolving things. That´s why my approach to photography is also self-therapy. It feeds me with new remarkable experiences.

In that respect, nature and urban life are essential topics for me. I feel that both of them expand my creative process. When going outdoors, I take the time to encounter and enjoy my subjects.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
ANSEL ADAMS
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
ERNST HASS
“Black and white are the colors of photography. They symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is subjected.”
