I was born in Paris of Spanish parents in 1967. After graduating from the ISIT (Institut Superieur d´Interpretation et de Traduction), I worked as a translator but by the age of thirty my passion for photography had taken over my life. I moved to the United States in the late 90s and stayed in New York for four years and sharpened my skills as an assistant photographer. Back in Paris, I worked under the tutelage of photographers like Peter Beard and Ellen Von Unwerth and soon after was hired to shoot editorials for magazines such as Telva, El Mundo Magazine, Cartier Magazine, Yodona, Le Nouvel Obs, LSA.
In 2004 I embarked on a project with renowned pro and anti-Castro Cuban artists mixing photography and painting. After a six-year collaboration, “Cuban Portraits” was exhibited at the Contemporary Art Center Wifredo Lam in Havana, Cuba in 2010.
In 2015, I took on my most personal project to date. Inspired by the death of my grandfather, I decided to seek out the last veteran soldiers of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). “Los Ultimos/The Last Ones” became part of the international festival of
Photography PhotoEspaña 2019 and was exhibited in Zaragoza and Madrid before COVID put a halt to all shows.
I use photography as a mean to observe and enter people´s lives respectfully and intimately in order to celebrate their humanity.
I currently reside in Zaragoza, Spain.
