I’m a photographer from Barcelona, currently based in Norway. After studying and working in the architecture field for many years, I finally quit my job to focus on photography. For the past 9 years I’ve been working on different cities around the world, always with a small camera in my hand, trying to make some sense of the chaos in the streets. I’m a member of the iN-PUBLiC street photography collective. 


Nothing feels better than hitting the streets in the morning knowing I have all day ahead of me to photograph freely in the city. No plans, no predefined pictures, no route; just walk and walk and see and react, and walk and see and react, again and again, letting the photos guide me through the streets: I see something left, I go left. I see something right, I go right. It’s an instinctive process that keeps me focused in the moment, and more often than not, walking in circles.

I’m not a documentarist trying to describe things. Photography is basically a game for me and I think that’s the best way to describe it: I play Street Photography, and the city, its people, its signs, a shadow, a tree or some trash… anything can make for a good subject if seen with the right eyes.
