I bought my first camera, a Nikon FM2, when I was 15. At first to merely portray my friends, many of them artists and musicians. What started as the desire to capture the moment soon turned into more. A dream that brought me from my home southern Spain all the way to London where I started studying in 1994 at Chelsea College of Art & Design. Over the next 5 years, I participated in various exhibitions and was chosen to represent London at the Bandits Mages Festival in Bourges, France. I used my work to creatively question the notions of how we look at others, how we look at each other, and – most importantly – how we look at ourselves. The body of work consisted of a series of self-portraits through mirrors, and through other people’s eyes.
Once finished my degree, I had the chance to broaden my horizon in various fields related to the image – moving and still – by assisting the producers of media-enhanced music events as well as various photographers. With time and travel, my work also changed.
After having spent a decade in London, I decided to return to Spain to find new inspiration. Since living in Barcelona, my work changed again. I focus my work on another passion of mine this city has to offer: a real and unadorned look at the music scene. After years of having portrayed musicians, the relationships we have enable me to capture them in a way that seems pure, raw and sometimes even intimate. When photographing at night, I love the dim light, the contrasts that emerge and the way black and white photography has an even more dramatic effect and is so much more expressive. My love for night photography in all its facets has leaded me to now specialize in portraits, landscapes and the music scene.
