Since 2007 he develops his work as a teacher in CASA, Blank Paper School , in the European Institude of Design (Madrid, Spain) and in Efti (Madrid, Spain).

He published the books El blanco (Dalpine, 2016), El Porqué de las naranjas (Mack Books, 2014), Paloma al aire (Photovision-Schaden-Dewi Lewis, 2011), La caza del lobo congelado (Fiesta Ediciones-Cuadernos de la Kursala, Universidad de Cadiz, 2009) and Belleza de barrio (Universidad de Extremadura, 2008).

“His photographic work focuses on the yearnings of the human being: the deep and universal longings of the citizen of the mass society, fighting against banality in an effort to transcend, confronting his own dignity with a medium always untrustworthy. To this end, he turns his eye to expressions of contemporary folklore, looking for the truth of the Spaniard: a townsman who is forced to live in the city, in modernity. Beyond a pop appearance distant and cynical he is interested in what is human and anthropological. Beyond the social and documentary, he searches for the truthful and universal pulsations beating beneath the banal surface often kitsch and lacking glamour of contemporary Spain”.
