Collaborator in the photography book The Valencian Community, by Cristopher Makos, and in the exhibition of Sebastião Salgado at the Biennial of Valencia. Illustrator of Sentiments’s book, from Group 10. I have combined literature and photography in the Presències exhibition, a collection of looks and voices in black Africa, which I have exhibited in several rooms of the Valencian Country.
My novel project “Des de la peixera” arises from my concern for corruption and to find out why people are corrupt, especially politicians and business people. Once the action is carried out, with the biography of the characters involved, and the cases of corruption chosen, what I plan to do at the Faber Residence is to unite these elements and build the story from the moment in which the trial begins and they are cited to declare the characters. Where you will see your link and your motivations in history.
