“For me a photo becomes an image when it is able to convey a message, emotions, when what the viewer observes makes you think, get excited.For many years I dreamed of being able to develop myself in photography, today I feel that I still have an infinite path to go, because one never finishes learning and improving, but the path already exists and is initiated. When one feels a passion for something it is impossible to stop, I think it is my case, photography occupies a very important place in my life and it is really a passion and I want to live it as such, always improving, it will depend on the work I can do as far as I can arrive”.
