My work is documentary and real, as I see things in the world. I was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1958. At the age of 12, I began to take pictures with a Agfa-Rapid 35 mm camera…
It was the in the mid-to-late 1960’s, early on in my childhood, when I developed a sensibility and respect towards nature. That sense of awe and inexplicable peace of mind grew every time I hiked next to my fellow Boy Scouts in Venezuela.
Every time I came back home I would be asked by my parents about my impressions on the excursions, only to have words fail me. It was hard to describe the impact it had had on me.”

Finales de los 60, en mi edad de muchacho,desarrolle mi sensibilidad y respeto por la naturaleza. Con el grupo de scouts hungaros en Venezuela saliamos hacer excursiones .Cada vez que volvia mis padres me preguntaban sobre el lugar y me era dificil explicarlo con palabras las bellezas disfrutadas en la naturaleza.  Luego con la fotografia pude mostrar mejor lo percibido por mi.
