I am a Mexican-British photographer whose work engages with the way we read and integrate images and information, at a time when information and its context changes at such a rapid pace. My work examines the relationship between context, interconnection and conclusion. It draws attention to how much we all need to develop a more ‘curatorial gaze’.

I like to invite viewers to participate within the ideas I present mainly via the interactivity that my work offers. For me due to the times we live in, the more we embrace the non-linear and the ambiguous, the more we can understand the highly complex web of threads behind some of the issues that we face today. I invite an audience to look at what appears as disconnected, or even contradictory, with a discerning eye.

A former charity campaigner, I currently work on independent research projects and for NGOs in England and abroad. 

In 2014 I was awarded a MEAD Fellowship from University of the Arts London.
