2018-Today | Architect - Architectural
Photographer

He picked up a camera when he was at Architecture School and never stopped shooting since.

He certainly believes that photography is how cities, buildings, and people come together. Fluctuating between different scales and typologies, exteriors, and interiors, the purpose of his work is to document the coexisting of an architecture project with its surroundings and the people who inhabit it. He also revisits projects to show how they have aged and, consequently, how the immediate place is transformed over time.

Over the years he has captured photographic moments and portraits to tell stories. Focused on how particular elements such as framing language, composition, and lighting are present in each shot and connect to recreate a memorable capture, making each one unique.
 
After finishing his master's degree in architecture in Argentina, he moved to Germany where he began his career as an architect in Leipzig before moving to Cologne to work at JSWD Architekten. In parallel, he began his career as an architectural photographer, the latter being his main creative pursuit.
