I work with photographs as my main vehicle to, paraphrasing Susan Sontag, 'loot and preserve, taking possession of the places I have visited.' I gravitate towards the forlorn cityscape, encountering vandalized and weather/time worn objects which I want to document before they vanish altogether.
In the early 90's I studied art history, print making & jewelry metalwork at the University of Puerto Rico. In 2001 my new interest in photography began with a trip to document the church of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. In 2005, pursuing more formal studies, I attended the International Center of Photography in New York to study Street Photography with Harvey Stein and also the Fashion Institute of Technology to study Fashion Photography with Didier Dorot.
I had a solo exhibition in 2004 for Volkswagen as part of the L Magazine's Summer Screen film show held in McCarren Park Pool, Brooklyn. In 2005 I also exhibited my work in the 'Positive Focus' Photography, The Experimentals - Planned & Accidental, Brooklyn.
In the summer of 2011 I participate in 'Bronx Calling', the Bronx Museum of the Arts's First AiM Biennial.
Currently I am in the research phase of an urban development project I call the Bronx Art Station (stay tuned for updates).
