For centuries the Arctic was a territory imagined and dreamed by man, impossible to access and therefore idealized, when the first explorers managed to enter the Arctic zone they spoke about a land of an incomparable beauty but also dangerous and wild.
At present it remains a unique area, with multiple riches and of very difficult access and until now has managed to protect itself from man.
The inhabitants of the Arctic, regardless of the country to which they belong, are united by the climate, a natural border that determines their way of life and their economy, they have adapted to the extreme conditions, developing a close connection with nature that flows through them; they care for and protect it as if it were part of their own body.
I studied Art Education at the Complutense University and Art Photography at the School of Arts and Design, both in Madrid.
I am a documentary and artistic photographer interested in the communities that are struggling to preserve and maintain their link with nature in their way of life, and in the importance of caring for and fighting to preserve Unique natural areas of our planet.
I think the photographic can help raise awareness about the importance of conserving our natural areas, showing the most threatened places and societies that are defending these areas relating to the natural environment ín a respectful way.
My work has been displayed in solo exhibitions at the College of Spain in Paris (France), Biennial of Photography of Tenerife (Spain) and Goethe-Institut in Dublin (Ireland), and several group exhibitions like Espacio Taiga Photobookshow San Petersburgo (Russia), Fotofabrika Festival Cervantes Institute Sofia (Bulgaria), Livros Possíveis Ateliê da Imagem Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), FELIFA Author Book Fair Buenos Aires (Argentina), or FOCUS Photography Festival Mumbai Bind Collective Library Mumbai (India).
My photographs have been published in OjodePez photography magazine, ARA newspaper, The Eye of Photography, Europa Press, Ah Magazine and ABC ARCO newspaper.
