His work focuses on portrait photography, with his artistic exploration of human behavior, especially in the aspect of identity.

Most recently his work's Los pies en la tierra has focused on exploration, documentation and implementation of a photographic workshop as a model of knowledge. The workshop aimed to generate knowledge through mediated and guided experiences. The mediator also became a participant in the educational process.

The activities were focused on developing their self-learning and to encourage commitment to their community encouraging a critical and transformative thinking. The strategies used, through games and activities, included the disciplines of photography, drawing, literature and video.

Los pies en la tierra evidence the possibilities and strength that has the art to potentiate in an informal learning environment the amazing creativity of children.
