I am a freelance photographer from Caracas, Venezuela, based since June 2019 in Miami, USA.
I studied Interior Design and practiced it for years, but I have always been close to photography. I come from a family of photographers, mainly dedicated to portraiture. I grow up with cameras and buying film before going to the beach every weekend.
I have been doing documentary photography for around thirteen years, and for the last ten years, I have been documenting my family life practically every day.
For years I had my eyes set on the street in photojournalism, but it was not until the beginning of 2019 that I could go out and do it. On second thought, that year, I dared to assume that this was what I wanted to do and went out to do it.
I am in full training and eager to learn and grow daily to continue to witness what happens in our environment, that daily routine that makes it a habit and normality, to make complaints, and to be the voice of those who need it.
Since February 2019, I have worked for Bloomberg News, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, AFP, Getty Images, Anadolu Agency, El País, and Buzzfeed, among others.
I like a lot to work on breaking news. The rush to run from one side to another to make it work excites me. But I also love to have the time to get involved in a story, to have time to go deep, and to be able to tell more about the people, their problems, or their achievements.
