Biography

 

Born in Madrid. Lives and works in Cantabria.

Photographer and visual artist, I have developed my creative activity on the basis of experimentation and fusion of disciplines and techniques around the world in the image.

In recent projects, developed after an intense documentary work, I have focused my artistic creation in a rereading of the territory, accumulating meanings in images, such as layers, as a synthesis and reflection on what each picture shows and hides.
