Photography

Since 2010, I have been doing documentary travel, artistic, sports and aerial photography,

  • A few years ago I fell in love with circus, both the art and the artists. I recently made a piece for @dwnews featuring the magician juggler Christian Hauschild to support juggling as aspiring sport for the next Olympics. And I enjoyed it a lot.

  • Yesterday I attended an amazing concert of Orka Teppler. It was a really beautiful and special experience which made me travel very deep within. Then, suddenly I knew she was familiar to me. When I went home, I found the documentary movie I shot for Ancient Trance in 2022, with Orka’s beautiful singing as soundtrack of the most emotional part of the film. I feel incredibly fortunate of having a job I am so passionate about, which offers me the opportunity to keep on learning and meeting incredible people, artists and events. Discovering Ancient Trance was a life-changing experience to me. They asked me to make an aftermovie (which normally lasts 2 minutes) and I ended up making a 30-minute documentary film. There, I discovered that it existed what so long I was searching for and dreaming of: a way to live where children can grow free and happy in families that keep on playing, dancing, singing and celebrating life always; a community based in principles of consciousness, peace and love. Ever since, no matter how I feel or where I am, I can always connect back to the tribe listening to this enchanting music.
  • ** Circlosión de Carcajadas - Marruecos 2023 **
Vídeo del último proyecto de circo social realizado en septiembre en Chauen y Larache. Es un privilegio enorme acompañar a un grupo de payasos con la misión tan noble de invertir su talento, tiempo e ilusión en hacer reír a quien lo necesita. No me cabe ninguna duda de que el mundo sería un lugar mejor si todos riéramos más, así que espero que este proyecto, además de haber arrancado carcajadas en decenas de niños marroquíes, también sirva para inspirar a relativizar, a restar importancia a las cosas y a mirar el lado positivo y divertido de las personas y de la vida, porque un día sin reír, es un día perdido.
  • First social circus show project in Morocco at an orphanage where they also host sick and homeless elderly. It’s immeasurable the power of laughter 🤡✨
