Born in Tomé, Chile 1985

Graduate in design. Master in Research and Photographic Creation from Universidad Finis Terrae, Santiago de Chile. 

My images and representations arise from a perspective that is characterized by the desire to leave behind female stereotypes established in the course of history. Thus abandoning the idealization of the body and visualizing other possible ways of creation where the woman is situated as the creative subject of her own imagery. The operations to arrive at an image can be varied and I like to instinctively explore them both in digital and analog processes. I understand photography as a singular performance that results in unexpected images. From this experimentation arises the process of creation itself, it is what builds the work activating its meaning and the readings that emerge from it.
