I was born and raised in Mexico City. I hold a Computer Systems Engineering degree and a passion for photography and visual design. Some people think that combining these two things is like mixing water with oil, but to me it is like a unique advantage that helps me see things differently, although it is true that sometimes I need to balance my left and right brain before they kill each other.
All my life I’ve been obsessed with observing my surroundings, and focusing on even the smallest details rather than just looking. I think many people let so many great things pass them by in their day to day life that it feels like those details somehow remain unnoticed, not realizing that those same details are the ones that make something or someone really pop out from the rest; sometimes we don’t understand how or why but they complete the picture as if they where an unconscious light.
I enjoy seeing those kinds of things, seeing differently, paying attention to details, contemplating how light interacts with our surroundings, and then use it the best I can to flatter those who give me the honor of taking their portrait.
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. – Elliott Erwitt
