1587 days later.
- Personal Project.

Book Design: collaboration with Alejandro Schmidt.
- Above anything else to Clara for letting me document this very intimate process, and for her eternal wisdom to understand that this was my very own personal way of connecting with the experience.
This project was initially conceived as a diary, a text-based narrative accompanied by images that I created throughout the process of Clara and I trying to get pregnant.
This was a long process, and through out it, photography evolved to be the means by which I observed myself and confronted my most grueling fears – the most competent tool to face that which I was not able to brave in any other way.
As this experience settled in, I became ready to share this work in book form, and that’s how 1587 came to fruition, a series examining my personal relationship and fears of parenthood, using the photographic image as a way to not only document but also to synthesize and understand my life as it moves forward.
My most profound appreciation to Clara for letting me document this very intimate journey, and for her eternal wisdom to understand that this was my way of connecting with the experience.
