Since 2014, he started with urban landscape photography, a passion that was formed in him since childhood due to the environment in which he grew up. He always saw his father with a camera in his hand, capturing everyday life and events that his family shared. In 2019, he made a radical change to street photography, finding in it a new way of observing and interpreting everyday life and the magic that he finds in what others consider depressing or unusual. The use of black and white in his work conveys a depth beyond what everyone sees, evoking emotions that are generated through his lens. This has led him to work on projects such as the advertising photos for the single "Tacones Rojos" by the artist Sebastián Yatra, among others.

He finds inspiration in the work of notable
photographers such as Elliot Erwitt, Josef Koudelka and Joel Meyerowitz, who taught him to look at the small moments of everyday life and turn them into underlying visual essays, whether through color or black and white photography. For him, streetphotography became not just a mantra, but a way to pursue his passion.
