In late summer 2022 I successfully completed the Master’s programme ‘Photography & Society’ at Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK), the Netherlands. A time that essentially contributed to the development and growth on a personal and professional level. With its emphasis on socially engaging themes and the social role of photography and art within society.
Fostering interdisciplinary approaches between art and science or design and sociology, my studies at Polytechnic University of Valencia, from where I successfully graduated in 2017, assisted me to set the foundation stones for my artistic practice. Completing my studies with the opening of my solo show Edits at Romà de la Calle Foundation I returned to Benlloc, the village I grew up in, to build up my own studio space situated within the local community. While living and working between the countryside and the city I presented my work in different exhibitions and events, among them PhotoEspaña, EACC, CCCC, among other institutions.

Being awarded the Habitat award for Las Bañistas granted me the possibility to develop the project further during an artist in residency program at GlogaAIR in Berlin, Germany. Which exposed me to a new and enriching cultural context, where I could extend my personal and artistic network in a vibrant art scene shaped by diverse influences and ideas of national and international artists, makers and thinkers. 


Following my stay in Germany I went to Normandy, France, to produce a new work for the PALMA festival (a festival for music and visual arts in Caen). Cuando haga bueno juega fuera y, cuando haga malo, juega dentro, an interactive camera obscura realisedwith a local institution and adolescents from marginalised backgrounds. A severe accident and the begin of the pandemic forced me to stay in France for 8 months, leaving me with 18% permanent physical disability and a good command of French.
