The photographic medium has always been in the vanguard of the investigation of political phenomena, registering moments of change and questioning the cultural identity. National boundaries are drawn as a result of political, historical or military motives and are therefore arbitrary, flexible and vulnerable. Unless, of course, they correspond to natural boundaries, which often happens. Only the immense sea, a mountain range, or an impenetrable desert, limits us to the question of why this or that piece of land should belong to this or that country.

For several years has been living and working in New York, and after his return to Spain he continued his studies in photography, completing a Master of Art in Photography at the European Institute of Design in Madrid (IED), and numerous international photography workshops.
