Photographer

I was born in October 1985 in the crazy city of Caracas in the beautiful Venezuela. In 2007 I felt I needed a change in my life so moved to Barcelona to study liberal arts and photography. This was the time when I felt in love with the magic of analogue photography and since then my cameras had become a part of me. I try to use photography as a ticket to go back to places and moments and to capture what cant be said by words. I am always chasing the light and get inspiration from my everyday life. I believe beauty comes from within simple things.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
