Barcelona, 1968

He started from a young age in photography in a totally amateur and self-taught way. Good observer and with a well-trained eye, takes photographs in various areas, especially in two of them:

On the one hand, its beloved Costa Brava, the life of its people, its sands and rocks, and the sea in general, always trying to seek different different points of view, fleeing from orthodox beauty and focusing a lot on backlights and strange angles angles that are often surprising for the viewer.

On the other, street photography. Good in the middle distance, the author, insightful observer, does not lose detail of gestures and textures, looking for curious scenes in the street. He often plays with silhouetted figures, backlights – again – and reflections, showing off his sense of humor and thus thus putting in focus scenes that otherwise would usually go unnoticed by the viewer.

Winner of multiple photo contests (RawGallery, Photography Chronicles, Lens Culture, Life Framer, Spider Awards, Int’l Photo Awards, BIPAwards, Streets Storytelling, etc …). Currently (2019/20), his photos are displayed in the Hotel Casa Volver, a collective project in a boutique hotel in Barcelona committed to local artists.
