Only 15 years old, I had no money to afford professional photography gear. But the streets have always whispered secrets about people and their desires in my listening ear. During the day I attended school and at night I went to the Teatro de Revistas. In this young days my source of income came from photographing an army of retired seniors who wanted their pictures taken next to the Vedettes.

Still a boy, I started working for local newspapers as La Nación, Planeta Urbano, and local publications among others.

In 1998, at 21, I joined the staff of Revista Gente, one of the best seller magazines in the Argentine publishing industry.

In 2000, I was won the Pleyade Award as best photojournalist of the year.

In 2002, I decided to launch my free-lance career in Europe. I worked in Italy for Corriere della Sera, La Repubblica, Panorama, Conde Nast and many others editorials in Paris, Bruxelles, Sidney. Corporate coverage for luxury brands included Esteè Lauder, Tom Ford and Shiseido to name a few.

In 2012 I joined the Nitrox Photographers Management in Milan.

In April 2013 I joined Contrasto one of the most celebrated photo agencies for the editorial market.

With more than 17 years in photography, I have photographed some of the most influential people in the world like Fidel Castro, David Lynch and many others among writers, sportmen, Nobel Price winners, artists and designers. ( Text via )
