I am a photographer and film director born in Spain.
After I graduated in Economics I moved to the Middle East in 2012 aiming to save the world with my camera. I started working on editorial assignments for American outlets and year later I was honored to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop in New York.
Since then, I have been working around the world. In 2016 I was selected as one of ‘PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to watch
I have received grant support from the Pulitzer Center
, the National Geographic Society
and GroundTruth among others. For the latter, I was a co-winner of an Edward R. Murrow award as a video series director. I am HEFAT
My photo and film work has been published in National Geographic, NOWNESS, The New Yorker, films.dance, TIME, Harper’s, VICE, Lenscratch, Outside, Newsweek, Paris Match, Der Spiegel, BBC, PBS, among others. I have been commissioned by clients like Human Rights Watch, Google, Red Bull, etc.
Ended up not saving the world, but at least I did saved myself from wearing a tie 9-5.
