As a young adult, I moved to New York from my native country of Argentina. There I studied ceramic sculpture and participated in several group showings during which I received several awards. I also taught myself the basics of early microprocessors and computers.
After moving to Washington, D.C., I learned computer programming and wrote several programs. In 1997 I moved with my family to Atlanta. I then began to highlight in my photographs the colors and shapes that attracted me in the first place and to remove all that was extraneous to the image I visualized in my mind.
My tools are the tools of the new century – computers; digital cameras, pens and tablets; virtual canvases and virtual paints. They allow me to share my vision, to show to others what I see in my mind.
Trying to make a moment permanent while at the same time capturing its liveliness is my goal because, ultimately, what I’m trying to convey is my own sense of wonder.
