The title Paso a Paso is Spanish for step by step. I chose this title for two reasons.
The first one as a mantra, a reminder to myself to take my time and to allow life to naturally unfold.
The second, as a request to the viewer to spend time with each individual piece. I am an advocate of “art as therapy” and create in large part to heal my own wounds and past traumas. For the work to have a similar effect on you, it needs to be savoured and taken in a bit at a time.
The collection is also the direct result of a year-long journey I’ve taken with established career artists from around the world. For this collection, I wanted to create something that was more accessible to the audience while still staying true to my own personal artistic voice. I live for priceless experiences and always aim to uplift and inform people through my artwork. And with that in mind, I went through seven years of archived photos to find images that were more of an abstract nature and conveyed the essence of the personal lessons and insights I’ve had while creating with my camera.
I’ve opted to include images that have a lot of energy and movement in them and made a point of holding back with heavy editing and post-production techniques. Instead, I focused on keeping the images realistic and natural. The collection also experiments with narrative, prose, poetry, meditations and one-liners. These texts are there to give the viewer context.
I want the audience to not only see the image. I want them to see it through my eyes and from my perspective.
