Born and raised in Venezuela, I have been living in France since 2003. I first came to Paris inspired by images from films of the French New Wave, but since I could not find them, I started creating my images.
Photography started to be a real passion for me from 2010 onwards. A 365 project and many self-portraits followed. The self-portraits, in particular, allowed me to explore the possibilities of photography in a comfortable and reassuring environment.
In 2012, I decided to test my way of seeing in Lifestyle photography. As IP-Photographe, I've learned about traditions and costumes I did not know about, and this curious and detached disposition has allowed me to capture fleeting moments in the lives of my clients.
Following my incursions into lifestyle photography I stopped doing significant personal work. All changed in 2020. During the lockdown, I joined the 100daysoflumière challenge started by Caro Cuinet Wellings. It was a revelation for me. My personal photography took priority, especially my self-portraits.
I also followed the challenge in 2021 and 2022. I won 3rd, 1st, and 2nd place in the 100daysoflumière contests in 2020, 2021, and 2022 respectively.
I have also won 3rd place in the self-portrait category of the 2021 IPA photography competition and an honorable mention in the 2021 Julia Margaret Cameron Award.
My first series of self-portraits was exhibited in 2012 in Paris as part of the group exhibition 20 ans, beaucoup, passionnément…
My self-portrait Home was exhibited in 2022 as part of the 6th Barcelona Foto Biennale.
I am also a technical writer and I continue to search for images in films.
