biography

I grew up in Uruguay and later settled in the UK where I studied Documentary Photography at Newport Art College, and have since travelled round the world for the international media and have also worked as still photographer, consultant and researcher for film and TV companies.

I regularly take commissions from recording labels, PR and touring agencies, promoters and magazines to cover musical events, festivals, dance and theatre. Please see the music and the bollywood portfolio sections.

Also produce audiovisual material and touring displays for Non Governmental Organizations like War on Want, Save The Children, OXFAM, Christian Aid, CAFOD, VSO, UNICEF, the British Council and the European Union. A co-founder of Reportage Photos, I am now distributing my images and multimedia stories online through Panos Pictures in the UK.

After being awarded a World Press Photo First Prize in the Environment category, I produced 'The Four Elements', a touring exhibition on ecological issues, sponsored by the European Union.

My long term project on children’s play around the world, 'Toys' was published by Mets & Schilt of Amsterdam in Dutch, German and English. It is distributed by Pluto Books in the UK. Please see the publications section. My photo-book: Katha: in the footsteps of George Orwell in Burma, is available on Blurb
