    Trying to create scenarios that include buildings, landscapes, characters, cities, identity elements of certain regions and areas, making atmospheres that tell stories through of images.

    He's interested in creating parallel worlds, where the unreal becomes real and vice versa, representing images with everyday situations that become extraordinary. He likes the idea of the sensation that gives the color and how it influences the way of perceiving reality and time.

    He likes to build and de-construct elements, transform them, create new spaces of existing ones, decontextualize, deform, invent or disappear ...

    He has participated in several collective exhibitions.
    He also participated in workshops and seminars on art, like "Curaduria" by Laura González at the Centro Fotografico Manuel Alvarez Bravo in 2016, and the diplomat in "cine comunitario" organized by "La calenda audiovisual" in the city of Oaxaca, where resided for six months. He has participed in conferences in the city of Mexico of contemporary art.

    His vision is combine the elements of identity of a city: architectural and cultural to create different atmospheres that make us reflect on the relationship that we have with the sites and places in we which inhabit.
