That sometimes results can take a long time to come but keep taking pictures and learning every day. Patience.

Despite the internal insecurities that sometimes surface, always believe in yourself and your intuition (they gave me the advice, that’s why) 🙂

What is the work you are most proud of and why?

I’m proud of all of them, but I really enjoyed the Bruma Ceramics project.

Where do you think the sector is evolving?

For my taste there is an overload of information and images, so we must be faithful to our principles and our essence to show what is most real about us.
