CURRICULUM/STATEMENT

ENGLISH
Born in Valencia (Spain). Based in Madrid.
Bachelor degree in Psychology.
My photographic series show the relationship, sometimes contradictory, between the natural and the artificial, between animate and inanimate. I research on places or situations where something seems not to be in the right place (physical or temporal place). Although the series can be formally very different from each other, always a common theme underlying all of them, related to the human trace.

ESPAÑOL
Nacido en Valencia (España). Resido en Madrid.
Licenciado en Psicología.
En mis series fotográficas se muestra la relación, en ocasiones contradictoria, entre lo natural y lo artificial, entre lo animado y lo inanimado. Investigo sobre lugares o situaciones donde algo parece no estar en el lugar correcto (lugar físico o temporal). Aunque las diferentes series pueden ser formalmente muy distintas entre sí, siempre subyace un tema común a todas ellas relacionado con la huella de lo humano.
