My works honors tradition and community, connecting my day- to day livingand seeing to the experience of the other persons who’ve live in our societies,now and in the past. My feeling is best stated by one of my favorite photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, “Photography is the conscience of myself and the most profound, human and personal self.” This pulls me into a deeper feeling of my work. By seeing social changes around me, I continue my own evolution.
