My portraits stem from the indissoluble union of photography and painting. I take countless photos of each subject to catch glimpses of truth and form an intimate connection with them, so that their soul is laid bare on the canvas without any filters. Moving through the complexities of the human mind, I seek to understand the unique fabric of each individual and tell timeless stories that reveal their truest essence, thus making them immortal.

“After all, what is a lifetime compared to the deep time of the universe?
An instant. Here you are.
I take the close-up of that instant.
And then I zoom in. Still. It's still. Moreover. And finally, here you are.”
