Born in Ubeda, Doctor in Veterinary Science and self-taught photographer
“I am particularly drawn and seduced by the Human Element”
I always thought that photography locked some magic within but I had none that could lead me on that fascinating world early on my life, hence my approach to photography was slow and with breaks, but nonetheless steady and firm. At the end of the 90’s I finally took the decision of taking photography seriously and I became a member of the Photographic Association of Ubeda. There I had the opportunity to discover a place of learning, art and discussion which is utterly seductive and where I was guided by outstanding photographers who have become friends with the past of time. Ever since, Photography has come into my daily life and is an integral part of my leisure.
My photography is mainly a travel and documentary photography but saying that, any moment that has plasticity, aesthetics or a strong visual narrative force makes me shoot. Those moments are a reflection of my world, my experiences, my preferences, and my moods and, of course, of myself. I am profoundly seduced by the human element, which brings that special feeling that only location portraits are capable of conveying.
Over the last years, photography has become an inseparable travel companion, to the point that my perception of the worlds I visit goes through the eye of the camera. It is then with those images that I can construct the story of my journey in the same way that a writer does it with his diary.
