BIO

I was born in Mérida, in 1986.
My mom is a hairdresser and my dad is a waiter.
I grew up observing. Observing how different ladies were before and after my mom’s hands, and observing how my dad had to stop their husbands drinking wine while they waited.

I studied Art History in Salamanca (Spain). During these studies, I received a one-year-scholarship within the Erasmus Program, to study in Siena (Italy). After that, I completed my studies with Superior Photography and Media Studies – Vocational Diploma – in Salamanca (Spain), finishing in 2011 and getting the best results.

For the past years I have worked mostly with analog photography. I feel more confident with it. It’s a continuous challenge. I love film and its processes as much as the quality of the final image.

Living in Berlin.
