I’m an independent photographer based in Los Angeles, California and member of Women Photograph. My work is committed to visual storytelling, covering a wide spectrum of genres but mostly focused on the exploration of culture, people and femininity. I’m drawn to documenting hidden stories and bringing them to light, by generating visual narratives.
After receiving my bachelor's degree in communications at UADE, I realized that photography was my perfect tool to communicate through images. This is when I earned my undergraduate degree in Photojournalism from ARGRA in Buenos Aires.
A few years later, after working for different media from Argentina and Mexico, I moved to the US where I found myself living between Florida, Texas and NY, where I graduated from the International Center of Photography’s Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program.
As a freelance photographer I contribute regularly to many magazines and newspapers from countries around the world including Argentina, Mexico and US. With more than 10 years experience in editorial photography, my work and personal projects have received recognition and been exhibited worldwide.
