I began taking pictures five years ago. On the street. Never stopped since. Mainly self taught, I have also attended a workshop by Magnum’s photographer Nikos Economopoulos in June 2016 and had annual portfolio reviews with him and other professionals since then. Currently working on a long-term project in South America.
A long journey from Argentina all the way up to Colombia. Far from the main cities and deep into the small urban and rural areas that constitute the backbone of what it’s known as the Pan-American Highway: the road symbol of a controversial attempt to unite and promote many of the Latin America’s countries. A road which is, most of all, a silent witness to the relentless vitality of one of the most socially and culturally diverse areas in the world.
