“Quo Vadis?” is about my search in life. Following a path, exploring my interior through ‘selfies avant-la-lettre’, the self-portroids (1982-1994) and exploring the outside through transiting unknown paths, the ‘Quo Vadis’ (1987-now). I am an explorer of my own life, a traveler in time and space, always looking for a new horizon, somewhere better?
When I step out of my house which lies hidden in a small valley and climb up our first hill, I come to open fields. On my morning walks I often walk around these fields, which always look different at all stages of all seasons. My latest exhibition is a homage to these fields. With fragments … More Ploughed Fields and Borrowed Words
In the summer of 2015, I received the great honour of being invited as an official photographer of the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda (RMCR) and documenting the three days of bullfights at the Goyesca Fair.

‘Semana Santa’, the Easter celebration, is taken very seriously in Andalusia. Every city, town or even the smallest village has been for months preparing their robes and attributes for the daily processions starting on ‘Domingo de Ramos’, Palm Sunday and continuing daily – depending on the size of the population – until the week after … More Devotion
The Valle del Genal near Ronda is best visited in autumn, when you find the chestnut trees colouring red and one can so clearly see the borders with the evergreen Mediterranean forest. It is a spectacular sight and a joy to go for one of the many walks between the white villages of the Genal … More Valle del Genal in Autumn
Don’t break no bones..
The old ways still live. Some of these works were shown at the exhibition ‘Desvíos‘, as member of the ‘Grupo NIE‘, in March 2011 at the Convento de Santo Domingo in Ronda.
During a period of nearly ten years (2000-2009) I have photographed ‘objects’ in the countryside. Objects best described as trash, garbage, junk, litter, scrap, debris or waste. Objects that in fact should not have been where they were. They don’t blend in. They often do not decompose and stay where I found them for many … More Still Life
