ab2.jpgHe was born in Buenos Aires in 1948.
 
His training began at the ACE (Asociación Cine Experimental), where he made a documentary and fiction short films, and made contact with the photographic technique, specializing in photographs of works of art. As a photographer, I record much of the theater produced in Buenos Aires in the last 30 years. His photos were published in various media in the country and abroad, and are part of several private collections.
 
In 2004 he was nominated by the UBA (2004 Teatro del Mundo award) as the best theatrical photographer for his work in the play "La Señora Macbeth", by Griselda Gámbaro.
 
He was selected as an exhibitor at the National Hall of Visual Arts 2005, 2006, and 2007.
 
Since 1994 he has worked as a photographer for the National Academy of Fine Arts.
 
In 2008 he was awarded the Theater of the World award as the best theatrical photographer of 2008, for his work in the play "La Pesca", by Ricardo Bartis.
