Expressions of Life aims to capture the very essence of who we are, highlighting the distinctiveness and character of each individual. A journey told through portraits.
I like doing ‘urban portraits’ without asking people to pose. It’s more in the subjects’ own environment, their own place where they feel more comfortable. I didn’t want to alter anything, I go by instinct first – I approach people on the street, have an informal conversation and then, from there, see if I can capture their portrait.
There are many pictures, many subjects – each one has its own character, own flavour, own personality. – Ricardo Palavecino
“I call myself a voice over performer. For me, voice over feels more like modeling. My voice has always been deep and I guess interesting and I made my career of it. I am the voice of AMC; the American Movie Classic Network.”

“We come from hundreds of ethnic and language backgrounds, yet we are united by common goals. Above all, we want to honor Jehovah, the God of the Bible and the Creator of all things. We do our best to imitate Jesus Christ and are proud to be called Christians. Each of us regularly spends time helping people learn about the Bible and God’s Kingdom. Because we witness, or talk, about Jehovah God and his Kingdom, we are known as Jehovah’s Witnesses.”
“I grew up in a very negative environment. I remembered a lot of fighting, a lot of people doing drugs, gang violence. I did not have a role model growing up, my playground was fighting, doing drugs, I never finished school, I spend my time with my hommies, they took me under their wings and they took care of me. You gotta make good choices. You want something good for your life, you want to be successful, you gotta start now,”
