How do you choose your subjects?
Now I am working in a new project that involves portraits of women and theirs bodies.
How do I choose them?, uhmn, first, I have to like them and they must have something let's call it unique for me. I hard to explain it.
Which past masters of photography do you most admire?
Well, I like a ot the work of Joel Peter Witkin and Jan Saudek, but they are still alive. then comes, Mapplethorpe, Helumt Newton, Avedon, Diane Arbus and Edward Weston.
Do you consider yourself more technical or more artistic?
Both are linked, I think you need some grade of technical ability to be able to put in a photograph what your have in your head.
So in that way I am always trying to learn more things and improve my technic. In the other hand I try to surprise to myself.
