This is a series of portraits inspired by Frida Kahlo and the great painters, Salbador Dali, Cezanne, Van Gogh.

From the first day that my grandmothers bought me a camera, I was hooked. I began experimenting with apertures, shutter speeds, to the point that my mother would frequently complain about me "wasting film."
Photography for me is a passion, and a point of view. I love using my photography to make a statement about this world and the people in it.
Photography as an art form, for me, is about breaking the rules of conformity. You have to dare to follow your own path.
