Quiet and in between moments

have always felt the most real to me.


I remember traveling through small towns in México, my hand sticking out of the window playing with the wind going up and down as I kept moving my hands like waves, listening to The Beatles while my dad was driving and me being his “first assistant” holding his film stocks stacked on his worn out leather bag while he photographed scenes on his 35mm camera.

That moment feels so real and authentic to me and that is one of my main inspirations. Little did I know, I would find my calling later on in life doing that exact thing, telling stories through my film camera.
