I started photographing in 1976 at the age of 19 with a film camera and as a self-taught person I learned how to print in the darkroom, developing films and printing in black and white. Subsequently, for about twenty years I dedicated myself to wedding photography until eight years ago I started to devote myself to a different genre with the intention of realizing something that could satisfy me on an emotional leave.To date, three of my projects have been published in trade magazines: Second Class, Ship Breacking Yard, Compartiendo Esperanzas.
