About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To follow to the music.

ABOUT ME

I am architect and photographer but I like everything related with cultural production and things that make me grow as a person. I think everybody can teach you something interesting is you have an opened gaze and are humble enough to appreciate it.

My photographic work focuses on landscape as a social construction. You can take a look at it here:

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC : The war on drugs, My Bloody Valentine, The Church , Slowdive, Ride. Damien Jurado, Jason Molina, Built to Spill, Pavement.

BOOKS: Depends on the stage of my life, but from Goethe to Virginie Despentes, everything is possible as long as it has a minimun of quality. Usually I feel very identified with Michel Houellebecq, wich is not something that I feel quite happy about.

MOVIES: I prefer movies talking about simple human relationships in a couple, a family or a community, I could say that "Tokyo Story", is the perfect example of the kind of cinema that I enjoy. But if the movie is good I am open to other genres like Sci-Fi, e.g. "Farenheit 451" is a great movie.

Teach: film photography technique, cooking, architecture and arts contemporary history.
