About

Me and my work

I was born in a marvellous island (Tenerife, Spain,1973).

Since I was a child all my world was colour, and shadow, and tales, under the palms, the quaternary forests and the volcano shape.

I remember myself in silence, pencil and paper in my hands, devouring books and drawing scenarios.

After finishing my Fine Art studies I was travelling and photographing faraway for long periods of time: that increased my love for the “racconto”.

Then I realised that photography was the way that will help me to understand, to create, to cacht the worlds in my mind, making them of “real images”.
