I was born in France in early 1979, from a Spanish mother and a Russian father. I lived in Paris for about 10 years until I decided to leave the old continent to join my father in the United States in July 1993. I lived in New York and graduated from a French high school, then , I chose to go to college in Chicago's university majoring in Medieval History.
My photographer's career began in 1996 when I took the decision to travel through Europe and Middle East looking for Antique Roman sites. When I came back to college in Chicago in fall 1998, I decided to go further in finding a job as a photographer in Chicago's local press newspapers. After 2 years of hard work and tired of covering local stories for newspapers such as The Reader or Streetwise, I decided to leave for Panama in order to cover the riots in the capital city in Summer 2000. I pursued my work in Spring 2001 in Armenia to work on my first important reportage about Ex-Soviet industry's remains. From that period on, I have been growingly drawn into this career, covering stories, in the US, Western Europe, Chiapas, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Congo, Ivory Coast, Syria, Lebanon, Georgia, Nepal, and Ethiopia.
