Biography

I was born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1980. I grew up in Badalona. At the age of fifteen, I had the opportunity to discover photography and self-taught the laboratory technique and its foundations. In 1998, I started studies related to the image. I studied cinema, television, and photography in Barcelona (CFGS Imagen, La Mercè). In 2000, when I finished my studies, I started working with the renowned photographer Rafael Vargas, working as an assistant and photographer for six years. In 2006, I decided to become professionally independent and embark on my path to advertising photography. I did assignments for internationally well-known companies and major advertising agencies. In 2011, I moved away from big cities to live in a small town called Sant Cebrià de Vallalta. At that time, I started my art project and spent several years studying and exploring the necessary conditions to develop my work. In 2013, due to the economic crisis, I emigrated to Mexico. I lived for one year in Metepec and another one in Toluca. In 2015 I moved permanently to Playa del Carmen (very close to Cancun), and soon after, I obtained Mexican nationality. In 2019, after eight years of intense reflection, I started to produce the images for the photographic project called “The hyperreal archive.” Today I am still engaged with it, obsessively studying, writing, and creating the photos I post on this website.
