I see gas stations as contemporary monuments. I imagine that very soon in the future there will be no more gas stations, because of the end of fossil fuels, so they will not have any function in the future. They will become past architectures and witnesses to our society.

I deal with photographic research in the context of landscape, urban and otherwise. The silences, the empty spaces, are the subjects I prefer. The human presence is not physical, but it exists. My photographic research is inspired by human traces, signs, overbuilding uncontrolled where the uncontaminated is replaced by urbanization. My research is almost exclusively about urban areas, a subjective/objective vision that leads me very close to the documentary photography.
