I began stringing with EFE, Spain’s national news agency.

After that I began to work with several newspapers, Reuters and The Associated Press where I was their official Canary Islands photographer, 3 years, after I worked in Madrid for AP, 3 years, and now I live in Southeast Asia as a freelance.

I have also collaborated with and had work published in The New York Times, Interviú, El País, El Mundo, Tiempo, Time Magazine, the International Herald Tribune, Washington Post, USA Today, Der Spiegel, Paris Match, XL Semanal, Magazine de La Vanguardia and Greenpeace.

Among some of the most moving assignments I have been on I have to include the refugee camps of the Saharawi people in northwest Africa in 1995, 2006 and 2011. I was in Kosovo in 1999 and at camps in Macedonia and the Palestine in 2000. Haiti elections 2010 and cholera epidemic.

I have participated in many memorable exhibitions including the Fotonoviembre collective exhibitions of 2001, 2005 and 2006. One of my projects was to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Sahrawi destitution. I have also exhibited at the 2007 Epson Fotofestival at Naarden, Holland.

In 2007 I was awarded two prizes in the World Press Photo in the categories Spot News, single and People in news, reportage.
