"I keep making portraits. I worry about people, I wonder what prevents us from living better. In my portraits, I try to show the distance between what we feel and what we say and think. I choose moments in my models or portray where a look can say more than a speech. I am interested in talking indirectly about the Afro-Cuban's history and culture because it is my history, it is my culture and I want to show how the past lives in the present."
