Art Photographer

I am a Spanish visual artist based in London, working primarily with the medium of photography in the fields of portraiture and documentary. During my studies at The Cass I have experimented with a variety of media, such as sculpture, painting, video art and performance; my work has always presented an interest in depicting the human body and its sexual nature, which has led me to focus on photography as I feel that the immediacy of this medium offers  the most direct way to communicate with a large public.  

At the moment I am working on my personal project; “The Modern Male” that combines portraiture photography with the will of documenting the fluid sexuality of gay, transgender and non-binary bodies. Focusing on LGTB community in the UK and Spain, my portraits express concepts of gender and identity and are chacacterised by nudity, intimacy and simplicity
