About the author

I'm a Spanish photojournalist based in Mexico City. Before moving here in 2007 I worked in Venezuela for six years with Reuters, EFE, EPA and various newspapers.

Currently I'm freelancing and producing audio slideshows. I've found that audio-slide shows are a nice way to present my photo stories, so on my website you'll find a virtual audio-photo tour of Mexico as well as stories that range from the victims of street violence in Caracas to Spanish art and cuisine.

Some of my stories have been awarded by the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) in their Best of Photojournalism (BOP) annual contests.
