For me, photography is just a way to fix and arrest those images, that make me curious for a moment. Do not build images by putting posing subjects or changing what I photograph, this would mean losing that moment that I consider especially curious and pollute my phylosophy and the soul of my pictures. Take a pictures, nothing else interests me, walking alone, looking, listening, waiting, and accepting that the streets, in my solitary explorations, make me to cross.
