ABOUT ME

Mexican photographer based in Tokyo, Japan.

In my passage from the world of words to photography, I continue to apply the principle of selection and restriction in my work: what is said is as important as what is not said; what is not in photography is as important as what is. Thus, in my photographic work, I seek to simplify the selection of space and to bring a single subject into play. More than the interaction between people, I seek to reflect the inadvertent interaction of people with their environment and the ephemeral passage of light. My intention is for viewers to find a reflection of the aesthetic potential in their own everyday life and moments of solitude.
