About

( Asturias, 1981 )

I am a freelance photographer and Gestalt & PNL Teraphist currently based in Barcelona.I combine my work with participatory photography projects, my own personal projects as well as teaching.

My photography focuses on the human and identity through portraiture, self-portrait and Participatory Photography. The body as a starting point, has a great experimental factor that drinks from dance, poetry, feminine and symbolic universes that the unconscious body generates.

I constantly question what reality offers me and what lies behind. I rely on photography as a tool for the process of personal transformation itself and as the generator of a change of social consciousness.
