I was born in 1973 and I have been taking photographs since I was 8. I could try to find a reason why; maybe it would result really poetic but it is just I owe it to my father, the day he put his Practika TL1000 in my hands and told me how to focus. From that day, seeing photographas, imagining how they sere made, learning composition... It was just an avid curiosity until the day I studied Arts and started to emulate with my camera the sensations that classical masters provided with their Art.

I´m sorry, I did´t start Photography thanks to Bresson, Adams or Kenna; I satarted Photography thanks to Miguel Angel, Caravaggio, Greco...


The Gear

All photographs shown in this site have been made using medium format cameras and TriX and FP4 films.

-Hasselblad 501CM + Carl Zeiss 80mm Planar, 150mm Sonar & 50mm Distagon.
-Yashica Mat 124G
-Handmade pinhole cameras.

Medium format negative is 6x6cm, double than a 35mm negative so the grain percentage is half, providing higher sharpness and final quality.


Black&White

Cartier Bresson said "Black and white is the colour of evocation", and it is true. Black and white evokes moments, memories that, behind shaping the reality, adds one more dimension to the photograph.
