Self taught fine art photographer originating from San Juan Puerto Rico.
The first time I saw a camera was in my father's hand, he was a passionate Nikon enthusiast and I remember being fascinated by seeing those photos on paper. Their rich colors and the smell of the photograph was something to fall in love with.
It was while studying computer science at the University of Puerto Rico that I started capturing images of friends close to me. Immediately falling in love with the medium. It wasn't until a close friend died that I learned about the power of an image, this served as a catalyst that sent me on the road I am now.
I'm known for my work with paint and skin. Where I project form and my subjects personal energy through textures and colors. I believe skin is the most interesting canvas of them all and especially love working with inspired people to create impossible beautiful imagery that celebrates our sexuality. We are nothing if not sexual creatures and while we tend to shy away from our nature it is when we accept it that we create art.
in 2011 I moved to New York, the city and it's energy inspired me like nothing before. It was there that I received the top prize for the New York Dancer Parade Photography Contest. Since then i've made it my priority to work with dancers of all types, who make the impossible and theatrical seem easy.
