SONDER the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur passing by on the street, or as a human putting a spot light and camera on them for a brief moment.


I have always been Interested in the journey, wether my own or more importantly, the journey of the subjects and clients who bring me into theirs. I love the dance between subject and myself, Between reality and the simulated. I pride myself on creating something that I find honest in form, yet has a life all its own in imagination.
