Pieces of concepts that don't fit, dreams that don't complement each other, differences that don't reconcile. Photographs of a here and now, of places that do not resemble other places, of lives that seek spaces in other paths and light in other paths, and that to do so leave other lives and other dreams.Sometimes a contact and sometimes an abyss, bridges that do not join, but also walls that do not grow, different realities that thrive in border deserts. Migrants who question words such as equality, dignity and respect, questioning basic principles of solidarity and empathy.

I am an architect, with a master in sociology and PhD in urban geography. I studied photography nearly 40 years ago. I am preparing a book of photography entitled “Streets of the World and Their People” with short narratives accompanying the photos. I am a social photographer. ( I like to travel and meet the world with its streets and its people, but the part that responds to my interest, my vision and philosophy of life. These images are a look at someone's world, a journey into their space and their life; an attempt to build a a story without affection, but part of a social commitment.
