Spanish freelance photographer. After graduating in law, I began to train in documentary photography and photo-journalism. I soon became aware not only of my passion for photography, but also how powerful images could be in capturing the realities I came face to face with. My journey as a photographer has been defined by my interest in recounting what happens, by reporting on realities that are sometimes not visible and by bringing to life human stories about anonymous people. It is often, these small stories, however, that can tell us how the world in which live really is.
In recent years I have been working in Africa, Middle East and Latin America, taken pictures of different themes such as the conflict and coltan mines in the East of the DR of Congo, oil extraction in the Niger delta, Boko Haram in the nort-east of Nigeria, Mexican farmworkers in EEUU, Syrian refugees living in neighboring countries or the war in Kurdistan.
