H2O Visions Project


John F. Kennedy once said…

    “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.”


This relates a lot of my way of thinking of the ocean. It’s a place where I feel comfortable and no matter what, I always feel tied to it. I bet a lot of people feel this way – I think it’s a natural way of thinking for human beings. Water and sun together make us feel alive and connected to the earth somehow. That’s why I started working on this photography project.

My H2O Visions project started with the idea to show something different and relaxing to the eye of the viewer. It’s something that happens in front of us every time we go to the ocean and we don’t really pay attention to it: the textures of the water or the movement of the waves. Always doing something unique, something that you are not going to see twice in a lifetime. Like a fingerprint, it can be similar but never the same.

In this project you will see pictures over, under and in between the water – unique views and perspectives. I’m always searching and watching what happens around me, the pictures taken are not the last. That’s the good thing about this project: hopefully, it never ends because water (our most precious resource) always finds a way to show a different but still beautiful way of being. The idea is to show what an amazing thing we have in front of us and change the way of thinking of people that don’t take care of it. Water is life and without it there wouldn’t be anything to tell…

My H2O visions are visions of ever changing life. Life that is constantly changing because the influence of other forces of nature that have a direct interaction with it, and because of the unique mix of these forces, it keeps changing every second. Every one of these seconds is surrounded by its own beauty… raw beauty
