II of the Center of the Image. His work is part of several private collections. Since 2014 he has taught photography classes and workshops in different institutions. He works with the transitions and artifacts of photography, among the dominant practices related to the mass and generalized production of the digital as opposed to the strategies related to photography and its specificities in terms of media and supports, as an official practice within contemporary art. It is in these interval changes that he finds ways of exploring the different natures of  photography, in a world where everyone makes, edits and shares images.
