“My method of expression is through photography. When I take a photograph I am looking to capture people’s thoughts and feelings. Through my exploration I am a witness, yet also I question, I fantasize, I dream.”

Since the early 1990’s, my work has involved the creation of conceptually based, socio-political photographic images that deal with memories of the past: images that have been part of my childhood and my adult experience. My work also addresses Diaspora, displacement, identity, gender and, most importantly, the underlying threads of violence and danger that appear to underpin our society.

In portraiture work, my focus is to capture the real movements of the individual.  In composing and taking a portrait, I am not only aiming to depict what the person looks like, but also to represent that which is a true reflection of who they are.

JOURNEYS summarizes a photographic work of several years while exploring different areas of Colombia, and Cuba over a period of time. The images shown have to do with what I see and make part of a social documentary.

Journeys are fragments of reality, what I see as a witness of this time, this amalgam of ideas after sometimes unexpected momentary actions, thus all actions can be related to political, social or identity issues, the case of a portrait can be extended by adding something new as part of the composition.

This project is a work in progress in which there is a starting point and there are many events that follow and perhaps a debate.
