The global pandemic of COVID-19 has been a turning point in our lives. We have had time to reflect and value what is really important to us, to flee from the superfluous and to search for the essence of our "day to day". This is how this project, "From the figurative to the abstract", a series of photographs that tries to capture how these events changed my way of perceiving reality, came about.

As a publicist, I specialised in the creation of logos and corporate identity manuals, creating simple and geometric designs. Now focused on minimalist photography, my work seeks to provoke a strong visual impact that attracts and captures the viewer's attention, transporting them to unique scenarios, making them an accomplice of my thoughts and feelings and enveloping them in an atmosphere that travels from the figurative to the abstract.
