My first encounter with photography was in a darkroom. I must have been four or five years old, I was experimenting with “photogenic drawings” in a creativity workshop. That is one of my oldest memories, one that is not built on the family album. I don't know what happened to dose photograms, but they left the mark of fascination on me.
When I photograph, my motivation is, most often, documentary. The common factor in the different ways I relate to photography is the search for being more present when I shoot. The limited amount of exposures when working with silver gelatine process, and the restrictions or conditioning of working with damaged equipment have proved to a blessing.
I was born in Buenos Aires in 1971. I live in Quito since 1999. I am a photographer and short-film maker. I have been a teacher, culture manager and curator for the past twenty years. I work on photography, film, editorial and exhibit design assignments.
