Intro
Thanks for visiting my photo gallery.
I am also in 4imagenes.com and Treklens


A Cuban can be in any part of the world, and I had to live almost at random in Costa Rica, a beautiful country that has given me many possibilities of growing and of living. I have not lost my roots that help me support of the hurricane-force winds that they shake the life but sadly I have to admit that I do not belong totally there not here. This way they are the feelings of the emigrant, like that they were my ancestors come to the caribean island from Tenerife looking in the island for the island that they left after the Atlantic Ocean.
My interest for the art comes from the childhood, and it was exactly the photography with whom I had the first contact. On having finished the sixth grade my parents gave me as prize to the qualifications a Russian camera of 35 mm mark Smena that I preserved as relic many years, with my first salary like doctor I managed to buy me a Zenit. I learned of self-taught form. Then the government Internationalist ordered me of Mission Ethiopia, and I loaded with my Zenit, there I bought to the only photographic study of the village an enlarger of the 50s and with Russian paper that they me were sending of Cuba I invented the Laboratory, the chemistry was doing it with the liquids of Rx one week after having being prepared.
I am grateful for the photography to pass 2 years of my life where the only inducement was a letter and a dark room.
The development of the digital photography and the edition made me recapture the thirst of seeing the world across the lens, nevertheless the explosive point was to discover TE and his exciting world.
Thanks to I support a healthy vice which I refuse to retire.
I offer them what I can do and to accept with gratitude the critiques and commentaries by virtue of growing.

Un cubano puede estar en cualquier parte del mundo, y a m me toc casi al azar vivir en Costa Rica, un hermoso pas que me ha dado muchas posibilidades de crecer y de vivir .No he perdido mis races que me ayudan a sostenerme de los vientos huracanados que sacuden la vida pero tristemente tengo que reconocer que no pertenezco totalmente all ni ac .As son los sentimientos del emigrante, as fueron mis ancestros llegados a Cuba desde Tenerife buscando en la isla, la isla que ellos dejaron tras el Atlntico.
Mi inters por el arte proviene desde la niez, y fue justamente la fotografa con quien tuve el primer contacto. Al terminar el sexto grado mis padres me regalaron como premio a las calificaciones una cmara rusa de 35 mm marca Smena que conserv como reliquia por muchos aos. Con mi primer sueldo como mdico alcanc a comprarme una Zenit. Aprend de forma autodidacta.Luego el gobierno me mand de Misin Internacionalista a Etiopa, y cargu con mi Zenit, all le compr al nico estudio fotogrfico del pueblo una ampliadora de los aos 50 y con papel ruso que me enviaban de Cuba me invent el Laboratorio, la qumica la haca con los lquidos de Rx una semana despus de haber sido preparados.
Le agradezco a la fotografa pasar 2 aos de mi vida donde el nico aliciente era una carta y un cuarto oscuro.
El desarrollo de la fotografa digital y la edicin computarizada me hicieron retomar la sed de ver el mundo a travs de la lente, sin embargo el punto detonante fue descubrir TE y su apasionante mundo.
Gracias a TE y esta gran familia mantengo un sano vicio el cual rehuso abandonar.
Les ofrezco lo que puedo hacer y acepto con gratitud las crticas y comentarios en virtud de crecer.
