"My father gave me a reflex camera when I was 15. I never thought photography was going to be my passion. I didn't go to photo school, so I consider myself a self-taught photographer. I am fascinated by the magic of traditional photography, from film to darkroom. My documentary work gives me the chance to know the world. My camera is my company."
