I’m a documentary photographer based in Florence, Italy.
Born 28th October 1982 in Verin, Spain, I studied Photography at Polytechnic University in Barcelona. Actually, I’m studying Sociology at the UNED University, and I’m a self-taught student of the Russian language. During the last 8 years I’ve worked as photographer in a photo-news agency in Italy. Actually I’m focusing myself on long therm projects.
