"The body was her house and the attic her favorite place. At night you could see the light on and hear her footsteps prowling, wondering about visible reality and its ambiguity" The human mind is the most complex and enigmatic structure known. It contains more neurons than stars in the galaxy. It has the so-called consciousness, inaccessible to animals and unique of the human being; with it, man reflects his environment, the closest social environment, and his own inner world, capable of making everything possible. That open attic of incalculable dimensions.

I’m a Cuban-born, self-taught photographer and visual storyteller based in the United States. I seek through my photos to capture the thought, human fragility, and its nature through surreal representations that are often an open question that makes you look more than once. My greatest passion is telling stories, not only to satisfy myself but to show others a part of themselves, through universal emotions and mysterious metaphors that fill the gap between visible reality and imaginary vision.
