It is said that those of us with Aquarius rising can pursue engineering, photography or astrology as a career. I decided to take all of those alternatives, and on top of that, I added cooking to the list.
My affinity with numbers led me to start with science. First, I was a computer engineer and then, while getting my masters in biomedical engineering I came into contact with images for the first time through Magnetic Resonance Imaging. I looked at the bodies inside until one day it occurred to me that it could also be fun to portray them from the outside. This is when my interest in photography arose.
After so many years in front of computers, added to my constant search for perfection through details, it was inevitable that I start experimenting with photographic retouching. It was through post-production that I began my path as a photographer. I have been working as a freelance advertising photographer for 13 years.
When working on personal projects I always turn to nature. 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 the attention on the senses. Working on this project has deepened my connection to the natural world and has also incited people to visit this place and has raised consciousness of the benefits that spending time in nature has for us.
I work mainly in Montevideo, Uruguay but I am available to travel the world.
