Photography, windows and mirrors

I see photography as a window through which we observe what surround us. Always curious, sensitive, alert. It is the search of the hidden meanings in the apparently obvious.

Photography is also a mirror. Thank to our images we discover ourselves. We understand who we are; what our obsessions are, which matters worry us. It is a way to put things in order in our minds.

But this observation and deduction process does not end until someone sees our work. Occasionally, at that point, the viewer might find him or herself facing his or her own concerns. Photography then derives into a dialog. The circle then closes.

I was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) in 1974. In 1992 I started to study photography in my home town. After some years I moved to Berlin to go on with my studies and get a wider view about photography. After working for many years in the design and advertising industry and having photography as a scape, in 2009 I decided to put more effort on my own projects. At the moment, I'm focussed in a personal search that's helping me to understand what I want to express, artistically speaking. Or is it the other way around?
