I imagine alternate realities through photography, digital retouching and drawing. 
In my work, I like that everything is thought out, that the whole is harmonious, sublimated to create photographs that are as realistic as possible, while opening the door to new visual metaphors. 
This allows me to achieve a certain vision of art to which I aspire and also to channel certain emotions and sublimate them, like an autobiographical reflection to be explored through self-portraiture.

Through photo manipulation, I create surreal images focused on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams, to capture both the complex strength and fragility of the human psyche.
In my work, I stage the female body, exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self.

Sometimes people ask me why I distort reality with my photos and why I don't follow the traditional idea of ​​photography. But why settle for the ordinary if we can achieve the impossible?
