I'm a Danish/Argentine photographer based in Copenhagen. Born in Buenos Aires in 1961, I've since lived and worked in many countries.

My imagery is equally informed by religious iconography, film noir's shadows and light, as well as the mystery of mysteries. In the words of Francis Bacon, "I strive to deepen the mystery."

I'm currently working on the project "We're All From Someplace" about transnational identity.

The images presented here are a small sample of my work.

Please feel free to contact me for further viewing and information.
