I was born in Uruguay and my nomadic life started at only 2 months old. I spent my childhood moving from country to country, from the still developing world to the already developed world and then back again. At the time, this was considered a dysfunctional life. Later, I realised that I had an incredibly interesting childhood and I feel very lucky to have experienced a life without borders at such an early age. Those younger years gave me my continued love for the unknown and the unfamiliar. My only fear is if I do get to know every corner of the world – then what?
My career began in the Brazilian Press, going from photographing for a small political newspaper to the more mainstream press. In 1990, I moved to New York and worked for a few Brazilian and Argentinian papers and magazines, covering the news. Moving to Singapore in 2003, I started to photograph on the streets there and also in many other cities around the region. I especially am enamoured with the cities and villages of India.
Travelling and photographing have been my obsession since I was 15 years old. I've also noticed that the older I get, the stronger this obsession has become. There are moments when a totally banal scene is transformed by the camera into an original image with an intriguing story to tell. Emotion, complexity and surprise are definitely elements I like, and these are the kinds of images I look for.
I have a BA in Journalism and an M.A. in Visual and International Communication from the University of Minnesota.
