I begun my life as a photographer a bit late, after my struggle to find myself in engineering I finally decided to follow my dad's foot prints and decided to pursuit my love for photography.

For me my career as a graphic designer, but specially photography are my way to keep my bipolar condition under control, my peronal treatment and many of my works are deeply influenced by my changing and contrating mood states.

But was the discover of the "alternative photographic processes" and the influence of Omaira Abadia what really defined my approach to the photographic art.

I'm a Colombian visual artist and designer my work is focused in find artistic pathways to melt traditional cultural roots with a global worldwide vision. Right now my goal is to experiment with mixtures between classical (analogical) and digital techniques of representation, capture and print of images; trying to find a personal way to express my vision and feelings about a lot of topics.

My main theme is the city: it landscape, it struggles, it stigmas, it inhabitants, it outsiders. the city as an extension of the humans and its relationships are an extension in direct relationship with the city. I live in a city which is a mixture of so many elements and factors, a destination for thousands of people running from 40years of warfare, a place to live, learn, dream and suffer. A city destroyed and rebuild, full of people giving the best to build and rebuild their own dreams and lives. But above all of it a city full of hope and hard work.

I try to reflect in my work my concerns about my role like a man and an artist in a process between traditions and preconceptions and more post modern perceptions about my self, my sexuality, my place and my future.

Between traditions, rituals, history and a little dose of nihilism and a hedonistic search I try to find equilibrium. I'm a bipolar person, my work is a catharsis, and a declaration of pride about my condition; my art pieces try to talk about my country, our wars, our pain, our dreams, our cultural melting pot and our never ending search of meaning.

The other ever present theme in my work is the concept of role as a cultural creation which have little relationship with the human beings and it's the fruit of powers in some specifict space and time.

I don't believe I create photographs, instead I think I build images using photography medium and techniques as a part of the process of give material sense to concepts and ideas. I deeply admire to the artists who are able to capture meaningful instants and freeze it in time, as a watcher I enjoy it so much. But as a creator, I see myself more like an artisan, like a designer who play with ideas, thoughts, cultural values and presures; who try to balance tensions, tones, shapes in the pursuit of visual pieces that are maybe photographic in it's deep nature but that are beyond the act of capture alone.
