A visual anthropologist whose research focuses on democracy and memory in Latin American photography.


Each photo is a kind of map that captures a specific historical, political and cultural moment, and my purpose is to understand how these images help us reflect on attempts to restore the memory of historically violated groups.

I have always been an observer of the world, which formed the root of my passion for looking at photographs and watching films. The images are a perception translations of the world through aesthetic and potentially activist language.
