I’m a photographer from Barcelona, currently based in Norway. After studying and working in the architecture field for a few years, I finally quit my job to focus on photography. For the past 12 years I’ve been photographing in different cities around the world, trying to make some sense of the chaos and randomness in the streets. I’m a member of the iN-PUBLiC street photography collective. 

Nothing feels better than hitting the streets in the morning knowing I have all day ahead of me to photograph freely in the city. No plans, no predefined pictures, no route; just walk and walk and see and react, and walk and see and react, again and again, letting the photos guide me through the streets: I see something left, I go left. I see something right, I go right. It’s an instinctive process that keeps me focused in the moment, and more often than not, walking in circles.

I’m not a documentarist trying to describe things. Photography is basically a game for me and I think that’s the best way to describe it: I play Street Photography, and the city, its people, its signs, a shadow, a tree or some trash… anything can make for a good subject if seen with the right eyes.
