Bio

I was born in 1976 in Madrid in a family of interior designers and antiquarians. My parents, frequent travelers when it was less common than today nowadays, awakened my sensitivity towards the world and nature.The privilege of being able to travel in my youth made me interested in photography as a tool capable to express my impressions of the places I visited.

I studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Madrid attracted by its artistic side. There I learned about the creative process, which was fundamental to later be able to apply it in my artistic work and outline my own aesthetic view. In 2019 I took a master’s degree in Art Theory and Projects at PHotoEspaña, which gave me a greater coherence and awareness of my work, acquiring tools that helped me boost my artistic career.

Although it is obviously a concern that I have since I was very young, the activism of my partner together with a four-year professional stay in China made me fully aware of the serious impact of human beings on nature and on our own well-being. Since then, I have been deeply committed to environmental and social sustainability, the “slow” culture and the simple way of life that all this entails.

To carry out this purpose, I use the image as a means to explore the relationship between the human being and the territory and to convey to the viewer the need to reconnect with the natural environment.

My work has been exhibited in the Madrid Royal Botanical Gardens, the Alcobendas Art Center, the Torrelavega National Photography Center in Spain and the Guangdong Museum of Contemporary Art (Guangzhou, China), among others. Likewise, I have been a winner in the 2020 Acción Autor competition, finalist in the Enaire 2021 Awards and have received other national and international recognitions.
