The Weekend After The Elections 2016

Fifth Avenue Trump Tower 2016 11 12

Here is a photograph I made the weekend after the Trump’s election. People gathered outside The Trump Tower, while the Police were barricading the streets. I had to walk a couple of blocks to be able to enter Fifth Avenue, as the streets nearby Trump’s residence were blocked by garbage trucks and the police.

I spent a few hours a few evenings and saw that people had something to say about the elections. There were loud protests, not violence. There was frustration, not anger. Even a policeman said to a colleague: “… And THIS is our president we have to protect”.

I was interested in the political context of the image. I believed that was an important moment in our history. Later, I focused on the atmosphere and emotions.

I made the photos with a Leica digital M240, a Leica 28mm Summicrom lens and a Leica flash.

I believe it is important keep your voice. When I lose it, I work hard to find my way back to the center, which in turn, opens doors onto new paths. I follow my passion.

Photography is a beautiful road I’ve been walking on with great humility. As a photographer, I like to use my camera to unravel the beauty and mystery of details. As a storyteller, I like to touch your hearts. Painting and mixed media unleashed new possibilities of expression.
