Photographer since 1993 also electronic engineer and actor, I was born in Mexico City in 1974 and I had traveled to different parts of Mexico seeking to discover its wonders.
My work is influenced not by photographers but painters like Ilya Repin, Edgar Degas; but the predominant influence is the Mexican Pre-hispanic (Mayan, Aztec, etc.) esthetics, forms, sculptures, paintings and recent Mexican painters like Siqueiros. Other influence that is deterministic in my photographs may be is Theater, I have been an experimental actor for 20 years, and this theatrical mood is always prevalent.
My photographic equipment is simple, but the beauty of the places I am discovering emphasize in my work; I think I am just a place discoverer and the impossibility of taking in an image all the magic of the place makes me capture a subjective square synthesis .
I am a tirelessly curious Mexico wanderer and a travel/landscape photographer. My main passion lies in capturing the beauty of my country. But not only nature, there are a lot of things that people make for changing their environment and the way they make it is filtered by culture. I am always trying to avoid the cliché´s and stereotypes, when you are in a place that is very rich in images and culture it is easy to involve in the subject and just capture it, and it could be by its own, interesting; but it is much better to make and interesting composition of this subject in interaction with its environment, that is why I think my work is interesting even for viewers that are not looking for Mexican landscapes, subjects and themes.
My work is not documentary, I am only looking for the esthetics of the image by itself, I refuse any political, religious or social interest in my images.
