I was born in La Paz Bolivia, the highest capital city in the world at an elevation of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above the sea level. As a child, a fun activity (maybe not that fun) was checking repeatedly Art and History books at home, same ones, again and again.
In 2005 I studied Archaeology at ‘Universidad Mayor de San Andrés’ (UMSA). I started photographing with discardable film cameras in 2008 and quickly went into the digital camera’s world. With all that technology in my hands, I had to do something. I enrolled in different photography courses and workshops.
Then, I found myself in my sweet spot: mixing Archaeology and Photography. I was very lucky to work as a photographer at one of the best Museums in Bolivia ‘Museo de Etnografía y Folklore’ (MUSEF), where I learned from the best ones. My interest in old photography techniques grow fast, conservation and restoration started to fascinate me, but my curiosity and explorer spirit made me leave my born country.
In 2013 I moved to Canada, since then I enjoy the mountain lifestyle but always very close to the Albertan prairies.
Through time, black and white have become my favorite technique, as I still shoot on film.
The Canadian Rockies area is now my home and the wonderful people I’ve meet inspired me to keep exploring. For sure I want to keep saving and capturing those happy moments that life gives us.
I am wide open to work in new inspirational ideas and developing collaborative projects.
