I am a photographer with a degree in anthropology, an MSc in photography and have recently submitted my PhD thesis. I have attended photography workshops by Magnum Photos, the New York Times, the Guardian and others. This year I was awarded a scholarship to develop the European Master in Contemporary Photography at the European Design Institute, in Madrid, where I am currently based, and took part in the British Journal of Photography collective exhibition Open Walls at the Arles Photo Festival, the biggest and most acclaimed photography festival in the world.
I worked as a photojournalist between 2003 and 2005. After that period, I started photographing in other areas, such as documental, wedding and event photography, but also stills photography for cinema, research projects and NGOs. I have collaborated with several publications, such as Lento Magazine in Uruguay.
I worked as a stills photographer for the film Pedro and Inês (2017), part of the Official Selection of Montreal Film Festival and started a project on disability and the right to Independent Life.
In 2018 I was selected for the Portfolio Walk of the Deutsche Fotografische Akademie, became part of the TransPhotoEurope initiative, organized by Photo España. I have also received an Honorable Mention at the FNAC New Talents in Photography Award 2018 (Portugal).
In the last three years, I have been the official photographer for three international research projects funded by the European Research Council and to NGOs such as the Promundo Institute, a "global leader in promoting gender justice and preventing violence by engaging men and boys in partnership with women and girls”.
My anthropological background has proven to be extremely relevant to my photographic practice, specifically concerning my approach to people and themes under scope.
