I am a photographer and director born in Spain. My work stems from my fascination with our conflicted existence as human beings. I am not interested in explaining things, in saying why and how, but to try to filter reality allowing the ambivalence and ambiguity to seep in.

In 2012 I moved to the Middle East, where I started working on editorial assignments. A 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.

My photo and film work has been published in National Geographic, The New Yorker, TIME, Harper’s, VICE, Outside, Newsweek, Paris Match, Der Spiegel, BBC, PBS, among others. I have been commissioned by clients like Human Rights Watch, Google, Red Bull, etc.

I am usually in the mood to make shit happen, so get in touch and let's create something.
