About Photographer

I am a self-taught photographer, still in the process of learning from the most inspiring photographers. I discovered my interest on Photography and travel when I moved to Germany from Spain due to work, 10 years ago. Being educated as a scientist, and following the Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, I believe that the purely objective reflection of reality is unreachable. As a photographer, when taking my photographs, I decide who, where, what frame and the precise moment I press the shutter of my camera. The result is my own reality, the reflection of my self into my images.
