"My reward is to be able to spark emotions for the viewer through a subtle accomplished reality, by virtue of my lens, the manipulation of light and consciousness. -Regardless of the photographic genre, everything points to the senses- Once that the images are exposed to public, any boosted sensation on other beings, escapes from my hands and from my power. This belongs and stimulates each individual in different ways, while its unique essence embraces the common subconscious. Nothing is static, nor a saved image. Nor a book. Sooner or later, every poem -wether visual or ethereal- changes, within and outside oneself. click, click, click!. My life rejoices under this constant renovation.
There are no secrets, the work atmosphere and each cell of the project must flow as a sweet melody. As One creator spirit. One lens with thousand eyes, and the awareness of the reality that surrounds. That’s my formula, my path..
This is my mind, this is my world, come and join me! "Eric A.
