About Nothing

"I make an artwork, and this work is a settlement of the world in my spirit."

"Objects can own a high degree of content and emanation and I like to photograph them against a neutral (white) background, in order to let them increase their impact."

“I shoot a detail of an existing artwork, and by means of photographically magnifying,I show unknown properties of the work."

"I like to appropriate the possibility of interpreting existing artworks, artists or concepts."

"My works are situated within the area of the analogue photography and I realize them on one sole film. Some of my works are shootings of installations that were built by me, and here, the installation is only an intermediation, which, for this reason, has no further right of existence."

"I feel at home in the tendencies of the conceptual art and these it perfectly with the kind of photography that I practice."

"I love authentic cameras. They are my tools."
