Fotógrafo

Since 2010 I have used photography as my main tool to capture my vision of reality. During a diploma at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico I learned to control the camera in its technical aspects, but more than 10 years of observing through the lens developed my taste and style in photography.

My inspiration

 

For most of the time I had the opportunity to have photography as an artistic expression. It is mine and in which nobody interfered and I perfected my taste for scenes without context, symmetry and contrasts.

I consider myself a spiritual person, I was raised in Catholicism but I find divinity beyond a religious institution. Sacred art, regardless of whether it is Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or any other religion comes as exceptionally beautiful to me. I find that aesthetic in what surrounds me and I try to capture it with the camera.

I am fascinated by abstracting color and shape from complex scenes. Getting a monochrome photograph of a landscape will always be an achievement for me.

I assume as queer, and I think it goes beyond sexuality. For my photography it means capturing what is different, what stands out for not being the norm. I love the diversity among people and I like to capture their different human expressions.

University education

 

In addition to artistic training, my vision is influenced by a social and cultural sense from my education in the social sciences. I obtained a Bachelor's degree in International Relations from the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico, where I later completed a Master's Degree in Human Rights and Guarantees. This period of my life allowed me to get to know an international academic world, which made me aware of various realities inside and outside of Mexico. This sensitivity is captured in my urban photography.

Professional development

Starting in 2017, I started working at the Ministry of Foreign Relations, initially focused on public policy to defend Mexicans in the United States. As of 2019 I began to work on immigration matters with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. This experience allowed me to develop a professional sense and a deep desire to make a difference in current difficulties.

Daguerro's beggining

Working in government has its advantages and disadvantages. In recent years, the first ones stopped being significant and during 2020, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to give myself the opportunity to fulfill a pending dream: dedicate myself to professional photography.

Since then I have explored new areas of photography such as portraiture and event photography, which have acquired a very meaningful value for me. It is impressive what a photograph can do for a person, from people who do not feel comfortable in front of the camera to capturing a precious moment. The end result is much more than an image, it is what that image means today and in 20 years.
