Bio:

I have always been interested in understanding and photographing the art of being an artist and I believe in the positive influence artists and their art have on societies. Most of my professional and personal work reflects that interest. Besides commercial assignments from film studios, magazines and corporate clients I like working on my long-term book projects like “MOKO JUMBIES: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad", “LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US – Mexican Border” “Keep Going New York !!” (which won awards from ASMP, Communication Arts and IPA).

For my ongoing project LA FRONTERA I already photographed over 200 artists on both sides of the 2000 miles long US-Mexico border in order to put a spotlight on the vibrant cultural activities and their positive influence on this bi-national region which is portrayed by politicians and the international media mostly with the sole focus on violent crime and illegal immigration.
