...an image is about feelings, NOT about technique.

LOVE: CREATIVITY, CHAOS and ADRENALINE.

ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY:
All my "photos/digital works (perhaps this last is a more appropriate name) are not real, they are based on a real image but colors/tones/elements size/... are modified in practically all of them (only the first photo of my collection shows the reality practically as it was).

I don't like purist photographers, I like creative people. WHY??? IT'S VERY EASY, BECAUSE WHEN YOU SEE THE ART OF SOMEBODY YOU KNOW MANY THINGS ABOUT HIM AND ABOUT HIS FEELINGS IN THAT MOMENT.

I don't consider the best photographers (my favorite) as photographers, I consider them DIGITAL ARTISTS as all of them modify the reality to a certain extent. I DONT MIND IT, IF IT IS RECOGNIZED I don't see any problem. I don't know why people bother this, as in most cases it is quite obvious when an image is modified and when not.
I dont mind if something is not in focus, or if something is over-saturated or not, or if some pixels are lost,...I see an image as a whole.

My favorite photographer is Max Rive. I also admire the work of Marc Adamus (IMO the best photographer of all times) and Alex Noriega, who has by far the "best eye" for colors/tones. Also admire the artistic creativity of Ryan Dyar (specially admire his eye for color combinations) and Enrico Fossati.
