I was never really good with words.

So I discovered poetry in pictures. Stories emerge where lines meet and colors merge. Frame by frame, subjects reveal to me pieces of their personal narratives.
Avid lover of Japan’s unique lifestyle, I took my film camera and spent a year capturing the youth culture.
By shooting in analog format, I aspired to connect with my subjects in all of their subtleties. Thus, I learned more with less.

I found focus in the blurry.

Little did I know that this journey would deeply shape my identity as a photographer.
I hope that emotions can transcend through these images to inspire you.

Here are the stories they chose to tell.

Only Lovers Left Alive

Only Lovers Left Alive is an editorial published in Kaltblut magazine that was inspired by the movie of the same title by Jim Jarmusch. We follow two silhouettes in the dark night of Shibuya. It reads like a comic!
