My two favourite pictures I took this last week at the Atlantic Coast in Uruguay.Somehow, they both make me feel happy and at the same time lonely. I can relate it with how we all feel around the world these days, weeks, months, well this past year, isolated. Trying to escape something or avoiding it at all costs, knowing that people close to us could'nt made it through. Or not knowing what could happen next, but still, keep on going.At least, that is what these pictures tell me, or how I feel about them.Both taken with my DJI Mavic Air 2.A little about me:I am a photographer from Uruguay, landscape lover. I recently got into photography, about 2 years now. I've now realized how much stories we can tell with meaningful pictures no matter the gear we use, it´a all about how we feel and see things to make a moment look like a story.
This piece is about chosen family, and the bonds we make as we grow older. In this illustration there are two people who's original family bonds were shaky but found each other and a canine companion to complete their own little family.
Poe's poem 'Alone' inspired me to paint this. When a soul is truly alone, not one being can make it better.
The details are usually more important to me than the context, I make many attempts to even take photos, staying for hours in front of what captures my attention to read and understand it, all my work is so far without editing: "from the source to your pupils".
My self portrait work is an exploration of quiet confidence and calm, moments of deep thinking and reflection, and most importantly a weekly practice to improve my photography. I’ve been pairing my self portraits with poems that I love. Poetry creates space for empathy, helps us to see our common humanity. Poetry has also offered me an opportunity to stay in and reflect on and heal from memories of painful experiences. I’m growing as a photographer and post pandemic when it’s more possible to photograph others, I hope to continue with self portraits as an exercise in self exploration, an exploration of my secrets if you will.
These are images comprised of digital composites I photographed from my project titled "Seaweed".
I’m a true believer that you can get what you propose to do.Make it happened.
<3October 2019, before the pandemic began, I had the opportunity of being the photographer of the first EVER drag queen wedding in Mexico City. the ceremony was so exciting because it was the first time I, and everyone in the crowd got to witness what love is all about.love is about celebrating existence as it is. about choosing who u want to be, who u want to be with, and what positive impact u want to have on others. its about respect, and acceptance of differences. love is about creating a safe space for people. its about communicating with our bodies and our feelings. its about creating spaces where we can feel free to think and do what we want to.this wedding was the expression of self love and love for others. the crowd was full with unique people that made the energy so profound that we all couldn't believe we where alive witnessing, living that moment.the best part of having my camera there, was that I was also in drag, so I was part of not just the wedding, not just the photographer, I was part of the community. a community that shares the love of all bodies together, without sex or gender defining us. it felt as if my life guided me to this feeling of loving myself and with that, being able of loving others.love is all, love is you.<3
