Visual artist passionate for the image and the occurrence of light in different media, such as analog, digital photography and alternative processes; as well as expanded graphics, photolithography, installation, art book, photo book and multidisciplinary projects.


As a visual artist, I have ventured into creative experimentation and theoretical reflection on the image and contemporary art from photography. I travel through my camera longing for the precise moment when light meets a surface and produces an image.

It is not the objects that attract my gaze, but the imaginaries that they produce when photographing the occurrences of light in contact with the limit of the physicality of the world, the instant in which the contemplated reality is illuminated leads me to consider the quality of the light.


Participating in the on-line residency FRONTERA, juntos a la distancia of the Proyecto ´ ace  has been rewarding and enriching. Meeting participants from different countries and disciplines, as well as learning about their creative experiences and reflections on the subject, has opened up new horizons and learning for me.

Over the course of a month I had the opportunity to work on two exercises, the first individually, Umbral, a photo book that had been brewing for a long time and I was able to specify. On the other hand, meeting Lurdi Blauth and Arturo Desimone was an experience that had its best moments during the meetings via zoom in which we managed to define a theme.

We also faced distances and challenges, although our attempts did not succeed, in such a way that we present three different results. What was interesting and enriching was seeing the results the other teams reached and the comments that emerged about their experiences. I remain with the enormous desire to participate in situ in Project ´ace and the pleasure of having met them.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
