About the series: Violeta:
Two days after her birth I took Violeta into my arms and we had our first dance together. We have danced many times since then. She grew up; she learned to speak, to walk. She met the sea, and got a brother. I have been photographing Violeta since she was born. Unawarely, I took photographs of her - before conception, in the sea, inside her mother ́s belly. I photographed her during pregnancy. Photographing her has become another way of standing by her, understanding her and loving her.
