Bio

 

 

Artist Statement.

As a man,I am always seeking perfection in my attempt to tell a story in just one frame. I never really had much interest in reading text; to me the images that illustrate an article or book are the only important thing to focus on. Perhaps Mother Nature sought to compensate for my dyslexia by blessing me with a greater visual imagination.

As a viewer,I love to see how other photographers interpret reality, offering us their unique perspective and point of view to arouse our human curiosity and help us all to develop our creativity by using our imagination.
As an artist, I pay as much attention as possible to details, lighting, colors and texture and include the environment, where the subject of my photograph lives within the frame. I love using my wide-angle lens; I like to make a statement by enlarging a detail in my imagery by deforming the size of objects with this lens, making them appear larger than they really are. It is like underlining a sentence in a book, making it stronger, bolder.
As a photographer, I am obsessed with the idea of being able to tell a full story in one frame only. Too often our minds are influenced by what the narrator or the journalist is telling us; I want individual viewer to be less passive and able to create his or her own vision of reality. That‘s when I feel my mission has been accomplished, because my task is reporting the truth to viewers and at the same time leaving them enough space and freedom to create their own story through their imagination, with my imagery.

Hey Danilo,,I am VERY VERY Impressed, the artist in me loves the artist in you ! I’m really kind of sad to see the class end. Looking back on all the photos already brings memories of how much fun and rewarding this experience was, and how quickly it passed. I may just have to try another one when I get the time. I’m a firm believer that you only get out of something what you put into it. I made the decision to put everything I had into this class and I must say I got twice as much back. I learned some valuable lessons and techniques that I will use for many years to come, and I will always be reminded of Bryan and Danilo when I use them with nostalgic memories. And who knows, maybe I’ll run into some of my classmates down the road and we can reminisce :).
