    Born in Piura-Peru in 1983 I discovered my passion for photography in 2004 while studying industrial design at the University of La Plata in Argentina. In 2005 I started my professional activities working as a correspondent in the magazine 20/20 in Colombia. For 6 years I combined photography with the advertising work as a graphic designer in different advertising agencies, where I got a whole dimension of the particular needs of advertising and gave me a complementary view. In 2012 I moved to Panama where I actually live and enjoy developing editorial and advertising work for major local and international brands. Meanwhile I work personal projects like this, trying to contribute to this world where my kids are growing up.

Have you ever thought about who will be the last one in this planet to go out and turn off the lights? A journey through real places where premonitions come true and a light dress reminds us that in each shopping we are slowly using up everything. A hard work in each step of the project. Design and build a dress with more than 300 bulbs, put them one by one in every shooting. Go to places with particular stories to tell about desolation: planes seized by drug traffic, an awesome hotel and a cruise property of a drugs cartel abandoned since the 70s, a dry forest and a decayed desert. The big challenge to photograph something that was already lightened with few minutes of natural light in the dawn and in the evening, a very hard work worthwhile but we want to do it again all around the world.
