I work producing photographs that aim to obtain a reflection on diverse aspects of our modern-day culture.
In capturing a display of objects, the forms of nature, the array of urban landscapes, or the unpredictability of human form -and in my research, I explore phenomenology on both neutral and conditioned backgrounds.
I intend to generate an understanding on how the significance of what we see affects others, and how it creates a lasting impression in our memory.
With a base in NYC, I have worked for numerous clients and in commissioned commercial, fine art & personal projects in the U.S.A. Great Britain, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Venezuela, Argentina, Costa Rica and Colombia. My work has been exhibited in several galleries and is part of private art collections.
Working with top-of-the line equipment in both film and digital platforms, my involvement in visual projects is definitely enthusiastic. I am also committed to providing my clients -old and new, with outstanding imagery and excellent results.
Before completing my University studies, I was already shooting extensively for high-profile magazines. I provided work for almost every major publication in Bogotá -for more than 5 years-, and for advertising agencies as Lowe & Partners, Bates and Ogilvy. My photographs were featured in many of the local and international publications including: Fucsia, Estilo Fedco, Axxis, Rolling Stone and Architectural Digest among others. My work covered fashion, portraiture, architecture, stills and reportage.
In addition, I lectured on different levels of photography at Bogotá's top universities for 7 years, before deciding to travel to the U.S.A., the U.K. and Continental Europe to focus more deeply on my personal work and expand on my international experience.
I completed my BA in Bogotá in late 1999, majoring as a Professional in Advertising with a Graphic Design emphasis. Although I had been attending a BA in Architecture as well, I understood that none of these choices matched my real professional motivation completely, and I decided then to put all my efforts into pursuing a career in Photography. My experience with the medium dates from my teens, and since 1989 I have been shooting photographs on a permanent basis.
The opportunity to travel frequently has given me a broader perspective of cultural aspects that transcend fashion and artistic frontiers.
Regarding artistic influences, music and film are the core of my visual approach. My intense love for music has made me DJ and play bass in several bands. Other influences include Plastic Arts: Surrealism, Pop Art, the German Bauhaus movement, Fashion and Contemporary Cinematography.
