MY BACKGROUND

I bought my first film camera in 1992 and started playing around liquids and black and white processing in the dark room up till 2004, that I bought my first digital.

In 2016 I started living in UK and it is then that I start to look for courses and education with expert photographers. Back to Spain, I participated in many courses and workshops, mostly in LENS school of visual arts in madrid, but also reading books and studying by myself.

I do not like labelling my photography but the streets are the most appealing to me at the moment. If I have to define myself I would say I am curious about eveything but I am mainly fascinated by light 

My set of references is always growing but some are never away from my boohshelf. Leiter, Haas, Meyerowitz are masters to me, but I also love works from Gregory Halpern, Trent Parke, or Txema Salvans. The list is never ending.

I am part of El Club de Fotografia Callejera, more than a Club, with Jota Barros, and as well, the street collective @alacalle
