    The central issue of my photographs is the relationship that is established between individuals and institutions (family, education, political parties, religion...). I also pay attention to the contradictions that ensue when we try to conserve our individuality while simultaneously dealing with our condition of social beings. I consider photography a relevant tool, sometimes in favor of just causes, other times in favor of pleasing or displeasing lies, and almost always as a source of nostalgia.
