Chilean photographer from a background as an architect. His documentary research work focuses mainly on geopolitical and territorial conflicts, which he approaches from a contemporary and multidisciplinary perspective.
His recent research on young people who left Chile for Russia in 1973 and could not return, was published in The New York Times, which allowed him to collaborate as a freelancer for the same newspaper.
His long-term work on extractive history in the Atacama Desert and his current relationship with Lithium in South America, has been exhibited in Chile, Shanghai, Paris Photo and this 2019 will be in AIPAD New York and Photo London.
He has been selected at fairs and festivals such as Descubrimeintos in PhotoEspaña, TransÁrca, Photo London UK and the FIFV in Valparaíso Chile. He teaches at the Universidad Diego Portales Chile.
