Nieto y abuelo
“My work is documentary and real, as I see things in the world. I was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1958. At the age of 12, I began to take pictures with a Agfa-Rapid 35 mm camera. It was the in the mid-to-late 1960’s, early on in my childhood, when I developed a sensibility and respect towards nature. That sense of awe and inexplicable peace of mind grew every time I hiked next to my fellow Boy Scouts in Venezuela.Every time I came back home I would be asked by my parents about my impressions on the excursions, only to have words fail me. It was hard to describe the impact it had had on me.” I have been working in the photography business as a freelancer photographer for over 35 years. I have lived and worked in Venezuela and lived in Chicago city ,Illinois,USA. I have recently moved to Budapest, Hungary looking for new horizons and inspiration. I am specialized in nature, landscape and portrait. I have worked for several local and multinational advertising agencies such as: Publicis, JWT, Draft FCB, Leo Burnett, among others and direct companies.
