A word about my technique:

The unique luminosity and sense of depth present in my images are achieved by a technique I have developed over time. The entire process is done on camera; no computer manipulation is involved.
Starting with a Black & White film, i move into creating different layers of color film which I then hand-paint and shoot through layers of thick glass.
This process results in richness and singular luminosity. The end product is a chromogenic print  or an Archival pigment print.
