The journey that led to the creation of these pages, took a long time, beginning in the late 90’s. Whilst taking a trip through Latin America by motorbike, discovering beautiful landscapes provided by mother earth. Through many days and nights soaking up the star filled skies shining on the Apus Mountains, the rainforests and the deserts, all these emotional experiences, triggered the grain of an idea to do something to capture the images. I started by photographing the sights I saw there, and then later came to Europe to study further. I discovered mixing photography and painting light, techniques that when combined, heightened my passion for nature (mother earth). I set out to combine them and find some way to use them in my life.
Inti is the sun god in the Incan culture (“supreme god of light”). I lived in Cusco, Peru for many years, where I became close to mother earth, the universe and the human soul, I learned a well known saying; “I wish you much light”. It is a good luck wish used between friends in particular. From these experiences and this saying in particular, what better name for my project than Inti?
These pages represent a small tribute to the beautiful Incan culture and to those many dear friends I met in Cusco, from deep in my heart.
For now I have started with my recent experiments in images and light and in future I will add photographs form that beautiful part of my life, there in Cusco. I hope you enjoy my humble page that is made with passion and good energy, thank you.
