Since 1983, when I started to use photography as a means of expression, I have always sought to ensure that the works I make are purely photographic, in other words, that the pieces have no resources other than those of the photographic medium.

The different images which form part of my work are in black and white, not in colour, saturated or soft and grey, with specular backlights, but always using different photographic techniques that allow me to express the concepts on the subject exposed the best way I can.

I work indistinctly in analogue and digital photography to explain issues that have always captivated me: death, human perception, freedom, fears, symbolism, beauty, constructions … From a poetic and symbolic perspective I reflect with photography my thoughts on universal matters.

The series are a variety of pictures where the thoughts I want to transmit are represented in a metaphorical way. In the same way, but without the extension that the series provide, I also take isolated pictures that reflect the same motivations regarding themes and ideas.

In one way or another, all the proposed themes arise from lived experiences. Therefore, my work is autobiographical in the sense that any reflection has been the result of a first-person experience.
