Between black and white and colour film which would you choose?

Personally I am in love with black and white film because for me, transmits more than the color; meaning that one focuses more on the character. To me it's like photographing the soul, the time or character. It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul and that it is the black and white film, the mirror of the soul, that I always choose the black and white, mainly for landscape or portrait. I use color for the viewer to connect with atmospheres that I believe in my conceptual work

What lenses do you use?

To my Mamiya RZ67 camera using 65mm and 150mm lenses. To my Konica camera using lenses Konica 50mm and 135mm.

Do you make any experiments on film?

I do double exposures. But usually I like to capture what is in the moment as it is, without changes.I try to be purist
