I began my professional career in science, getting a degree in Computer Engineer by Universidad de la República in Uruguay first and then an MS in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University, Chicago, USA. It was working with Magnetic Resonance Imaging in my master’s degree when I felt inspired by a new way of looking at images and started experimenting with photography.
I have been working as a freelance photographer for 13 years with clients such as Unicef, HBO, Coca-Cola, Nestle, The New York Times, Monocle Magazine and many companies and ad agencies in Uruguay and abroad. My main work area is advertising but I also shoot portraits, architecture and food.
When working on personal projects I always turn to the wilderness. My latest project was shot in Arboretum Lussich, in Punta Ballena, Uruguay and is based on the Japanese concept of Shinrin-yoku or "Forest Bathing". This activity consists in taking walks in the forest, concentrating attention on the senses. Working on this project has deepened my connection to the natural world and has also inspired people to visit this place, raising consciousness of the benefits of spending time in nature.
I work mainly in Montevideo, Uruguay but I am available to travel the world.
National Geographic, The New York Times, Monocle Magazine, DesignBoom, Archdaily, Dezeen, among others.
