Ever since I was a young boy, I found my inspiration and comfort in nature. It taught me about life, and death, about change and evolution, about challenges and perseverance. Most importantly, it taught me about perspective and balance, about being humble and spiritual.
I started the Wild Image Project back in 2008. Nature has become an ideology, a debate, something people now humanize. While there is an extreme awareness, there is also an extreme disconnection with our planet. We continue to perceive ourselves as separated from the environment, superior with our technology. The Wild Image Project is an ongoing narrative that focuses on highlighting the true essence of nature and its teachings. Through my photography, writing and videos, I try to provoke a dialogue that forces the viewer to reevaluate its relationship with the environment. Nature is raw, rough, cruel, pretty, beautiful, inspiring, but above all, a humble experience.
“One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that.”
– Joseph Campbell
