Born 1978, Vinaròs, Valencia, Spain

I am interested in what can be seen, what can’t be seen, and in those things that pass unnoticed by the human eye. I discover new forms in the human eye. I discover new forms in the banal. I play with volume, shade and textures, from imprints of the landscape or creations of man. My camera is a tool to of the landscape or creations of man. My camera is a tool to capture the dialogue that exists between objects and shadows, expressing an individual vision and physical paces. My photos fuse the past with the present and future offer ring indefinite pieces of work, without chronological order, and which lend themselves to different interpretations. Each photo allows the viewer to extend imagination and form a personal reflection of the work.

Architecture and urban landscapes dominate my work. But it’s not the structures themselves that take preference, rather the powerful angles and shadows, and use of light that prevail in these black and white formats. These are highly studied compositions, where noting is random, except for the subjective opinion of the viewer. I strive that my photos possess simplicity, clean lines and stillness, characteristics eternally inherent in urban structures. My snapshots are a world apart from their real-life concrete representations. Independent of the actual structure, I try to capture my own interpretation, which in turn helps me form a collection of visual architectural pieces that are timeless.

My photographic inspiration has to do with everything related to Russian constructivism and suprematism. Malevich and Rodchenko among other artists. Of course also in the German Bauhaus and great photographers like László Moholy-Nagy, Stieglitz…
