A picture without Heart is just a piece of Paper

I am a Spanish photojournalist living in the countryside outside Barcelona. Most of my work centers on documenting social issues around the world. Although I graduated from the Autonoma University of Journalism in 1992, my passion and interest in photojournalism developed in my childhood from seeing photos of Eugene Smith,  Robert Capa and Larry Burrows on LIFE magazine. I am opened to undertake social and humanitarian projects around the globe because I do like the journey a photographic project can turn into over time. Most of all I just love to photograph people and  their enviroment.
