A self-taught polymath and a reactive conceptualizer, no matter what the chosen medium is, I offer a particular mirror to explore life, the eternal and the infinite.

An early approach to music and photography leads me to the Llotja Advanced School of Art and Design of Barcelona in which I was graded in applied arts on 1996 and where I developed talents for plastic expression, creative thinking and a broad perspective of man’s dimension in relation to his environment thanks to my specialization in industrial design.

The subject’s relationship with time-space marks my initial steps in artistic film creation and photography, abandoning soon the concrete or particular in favor of the universal, in a vision where the murmur of man’s progression of being is shaped by silences or absences that draw presences. Reflexive, serene and nostalgic. I try to find in the inevitable physicality of men, objects and spaces, the gateway to the metaphysical world that forms them.

My cinematographic slope already started in 2004 with video-art and it was developed later through documentaries, commercials and short films; in fiction, music, dance, theater, fashion... To go into feature films by the hand of the internationally recognized film director Isabel Coixet, working with her as director of photography, cameraman and editor in several projects like “Listening to the Judge Garzón” winner of best documentary in the Goya awards 2012 or the feature film “Yesterday never ends” with Javier Cámara and Candela Peña with which I have won Best Photography and Best Editing in the Málaga Spanish Film Festival 2013.

My palette join warm and cold tones organically. Using them to reinforce the inner worlds of the characters as well as their relationship with themselves and their environment.

I love working with international film directors with whom I can develop an artistic partnership.
