• surreal 2005 - 2008

Having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream, unreal, fantastic.

Experimenting with photomontage, a colorfull expression of "thoughts", my perception of human behavior, full of symbolism.

Eight photomontages created just for this event, expressing a variety of concepts about "transformation" at the Art Car Museum, Houston, Texas.

 

• people marks

fotofest biennial 2010

Human ambients or wherever humans leave their mark.
This work represents a change in my format using panoramic photos, less color and photomontage. All photographies were taken from different places of the world: Mexican Caribbean, New York, Houston and Galveston, U.S.

• the end of the world as we know it

fotofest biennial 2012

Based on the 2012 prophecies, anecdotes and sacarsm, I decided to create this collection for Fotofest, is a personal view of what could be a change of thinking on human race and also climate disorders all around the world.

 

ego_digital_vanity

fotofest biennial 2014

We live in a time of information excess, spread by the media that has created a market for images and cliches for our consumption and enjoyment.
Ego_digital_vanity intended to emphasize the use-abuse to which our subconscious is put on the "need" to present our image to others.
It is almost a humorous mirror that portrays us as consumers and slaves of ourselves, in a world where human values fade and are replaced by appearance without sense or content or depth.

The so called "selfitis" defined as "obsessive compulsive desire to take pictures of yourself and post them in the social media as a way to compensate for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in privacy".
