I'm an independent photographer in Spain. I happened upon photography by chance years ago. From then on, I have never been without my camera. When I take pictures, I bear in mind the geometry, the light and the shades, the instant... So then, photography is a passion of mine that channels my interior anguish and makes sense out of the surrounding chaos.
