“Growing up in Chile in the 80s, I had the minimum amount of things necessary in order to simply live. Because of this, I appreciate the simplicity of things a hundred times more. Keeping a sense of equality was imperative in those times, and that mindset shows a lot in my work in keeping, for example, a balanced color palette to create a sense of cohesion and unity between all the images of different subjects regardless of where the photograph was taken. Superficial photography, like the excessive application of Photoshop tools and tricks, really unsettles me in a number of ways, and I usually end up rejecting those types of projects so that I might stay more aligned with my core values. The fashion industry specifically can be very superficial at times and so it is common for me to turn away this kind of work.”
