Light wouldn’t exist without darkness is a universal rule that this street photographer uses with mastery, conceiving scenes where shapes would be nothing without shadows, obscure passages in which people wander with no more purpose than to find a purpose, trying to reach through the darkness that light that will guide them through life itself.

“Perhaps, the photographer that has influenced me the most in my whole life has been Eugene Smith because of his constant and almost unhealthy way of searching for perfection, for his rebellion against the established, but especially for his quotation: I didn’t write the rules, why should I follow them?”
