Currently, I am showing some images from the “Materas” Series among others

Beauty and Metaphors. Although my photo-projects are quite diverse, they have common strings. The Earth itself,the incredible diversity of the Andes and rain forests where I live. I focus on establishing thoughts on such magical nature and the human condition linked by common threads, and as I go beyond the aesthetics of my images I dig in those metaphorical and subtle personal lectures which I think are predominant throughout my work.
I also believe my photograhy is strong visually, highly conceptual, poetic ( I also write poetry), and some tragic and confrontational as some may be….
As a young graduated from College in the early 70s he came back to Colombia and since then has had an active participation in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Colombia, United states and Canada.He is a well known lecturer specially in conceptual and creativity issues.He has taught at mayor colleges in Bogota. Actually he is a mentor of several students and photographers who want to refine their narrative languaje and thecniques as well.
