Oldie from my series Magma. Still knee-high deep in negatives from my newest body of work, currently scanning and editing them, going through it all. It’s the first time a series takes me so long to release and the more time passes the more I wonder if I am ready to share it just yet, or if I should hold on to it a little longer.

Another shot on film from Oman. I must say I have enjoyed keeping those 35mm shots with me for a while before scanning them. It almost feels as if they are someone else’s, or part of a dream I cannot fully remember.

Adventures in Oman a couple of Winters ago. Would have followed those winding canyons to oblivion. On Kodak Portra 400, 35mm.

Swimming hole, 35 mm Oman. With my new series at the final editing stages and still not quite ready to be seen just yet, I’ve enjoyed sharing some unseen film work from the past few years in here. As someone relatively new to analog, I have been using my 35mm camera as a photo journal, documenting details and outtakes from my daily life. Now I find that with time these shots are getting as equally precious as the epic landscapes.

A few years ago I escaped to Wales for a bit to overcome grief for the sudden death of my pet cat. I remember hiking the trail, numbed, to the point the path got slippery and dangerous and people started to make their way down until I was basically alone on the trail. I then sat, under the falling snow, surrendered. I remember vividly how just being out there alone instantly made me feel better, more present, more connected. Still a picture of an extremely sad weekend but one I keep really close to my heart, a reminder of the healing power of nature.

After months of seeing my Instagram account slowly dying due to the idiotic algorithm, I’ve decided to start sharing my work on @behance . You can now find my first series Magma there and I’ll gradually be uploading newer and unseen material. Link on my bio if you wanna connect. Thank you for the love and support

Layers of the Atacama. I am getting more and more into shooting film lately and haven’t shared much of it on this account, mainly because I feel it would look out of place along these crisp digital landscapes. Would love to though, as I am learning to embrace this tidal shift in my practice. So what do you think, should I post more film work here or keep it only on @shadowonfilm ?
