He is a person who seeks to reinvent himself and not get stuck. his skills as a photographer, surprise to be a self-taught person. That speaks of someone clinging, with spirit and who has managed to polish his talent little by little with time and effort, without looking at the barriers along the way.

"Very glad, We really loved to work with him. His work is amazing and connects great with the idea in a conceptual, melancholy and artistic way. VERY ORIGINAL ". – Mr. Wolf
"refreshing and original project, rich in content, with enigmatic and symbolic context that left us fully engaged and interested to look on further. we always seeks new Artists with a unique perspective and other worldly concepts and it was exactly that. The beauty of the models and their flowing garments, in contrast to the harsh surroundings of sharp mountain sides, painted a contemporary, but biblical picture which we found to be totally enchanting and full of allure. Overall we feel privileged to have been able to view this project and to share this within our publication". – Zero savage +
