I was born in Madrid but I currently live in Washington DC. I was first introduced to photography while watching classic movies as a teenager. I didn't know at the time but the powerful visual storytelling of movie masters such as F.W. Murnau, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Louis Malle, Francois Truffaut, Luis Buñuel, and many others became forever embedded in my brain. Starting in 2011 I began to focus in photography as an art form, but it was only recently that I discovered my passion for street and documentary photography.
