1975 to 1990 I worked as freelancer in Sweden in mostly documentary projects, funded by the Swedish TV and/or Swedish Film Institute. Many were about Latin-American issues and most of them were shot in 16mm or super 16mm.

1990 to 2002 I lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, working locally and with international crews, my experience was broadened as I got involved in commercials and feature films. I also got several opportunities to produce and direct documentaries and institutional series.

Since 2002 I live in Spain with Madrid as base.

Although during the years I've became classified as a documentary photographer I've had experience in a lot of different types of work. I'm very intrested in social and human issues, but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy working on just lighting a product for a table top shot.
