BACK IN UKRAINE ON MAY 15TH
Born in Barcelona in 1982, after graduating in Medicine, I got my life straightened out: I studied Photography at IDEP Barcelona and Communication of Armed Conflicts at Complutense University of Madrid. Since 2017, and combined with my medical work in Barcelona, I have reported (mainly photography, but also text) in Catalonia, Kosovo, Northern Ireland, Morocco, Spain and Ukraine, mostly focusing on social, political and armed conflicts.
I have published articles and photo essays on Ara, Vilaweb, La Directa, L’Unilateral, La República and Hemisfèria (Catalonia), Descifrando la Guerra and Cultura Inquieta (Spain), Brecha (Uruguay), Designboom (Italy), Tempi (France), Docu Magazine (Finland) and Columbra (Colombia). Also some of my images and extracts of my texts have appeared on ABC and CBS (USA), La Vanguardia, TV3 and Betevé (Catalonia), 20 minutes, Valeurs Actuelles, Radio Classique, Le Grand Continent and Kyrn Economics (France), Dagbladet (Norway), Cuatro (Spain), News Letter and Insurance Day (UK), Wyborcza i Warszawa Naszemiato (Poland), Lviv Now (Ukraine) and also (the following stole them) on La Sexta (Spain), Visegrad24 (Poland), Pearl of Africa (Uganda), ANA-MPA, Thess Press, SofokleousIn, Circo Greco, Efimeris Dimoprasion and Gemmaco (Greece). I have reported for TV and radio for TV3, RAC1, Ràdio Tarragona and Ràdio Vilafant (Catalonia).
I have shown my work in Razzmatazz Club flyers, in a solo exhibition at OnLand Barcelona, and in several collective exhibitions in Barcelona, Athens, Crete, Budapest, Berlin, Trieste, Orlando, Glasgow and Wichita. Recently, I’ve been selected finalist for ANI/PixTrakk Award 2022 of Visa pour l’Image (Perpinyà, Catalonia). Also, I have achieved a Silver prize and a Honorable Mention at Tokyo International Foto Awards (2019 and 2021), 5 Honorable Mentions at International Photography Awards (2017, 2018, 2019 and 2×2020), another one at Paris Photo Prix (2020) and one more at Budapest International Foto Awards (2020), besides being finalist in a few other minor contests.
