Info-

I´m an artist and researcher who works across a diverse range of media such as photography, video, graphic design and sculpture. With my work I question discourses, dynamics and rhetorics that have been assumed in the realm of contemporary art, photography theory and philosophy. My production, both theoretical and practical, focuses on the transformation of the postmodern paradigm in relation to the digital visual culture.

My work has been exhibited internationally including events such as: Not All Photographs are Records, (Curated by Lorenzo Fusi, Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool Biennial, UK, 2014), The Billboard Creative International Exhibition (Curated by Mona Kuhn, Los Angeles, USA, 2016), and Les Nouveaux Encyclopédistes (Curated by Joan Fontcuberta, European Photography Festival, Regio Emilia, Italy, 2017).

I had received Grants such as UCO-LaFragua International Photography Prize (Córdoba 2015) and had been nominated for numerous prestigious photography awards such as the Post-Photography Prototyping Prize (Fotomuseum Winterthur and Julius Baer Foundation, Switzerland, 2016) and the . I have been a beneficiary of a PICE grant and being granted a scholarship in production and residence with SCAN Project Room (SCAN, Spanish Contemporary art Network, July, 2018, London) and also received the support of institutions such as the Banco Santander Foundation and The University of Córdoba,

Currently, I live in Syracuse, New York where I work as a teacher in the Department of Transmedia in the Faculty of Visual and Performative Arts of the University of Syracuse.
