How did you meet Raoul and Stephanie Fenestraz ?
I met Raoul and Steph when we were neighbors in Ascochinga, Córdoba. They lived in a house that had a polo field in front of the house I was renting, I arrived in this area over 17 years ago.
I started taking pictures of the polo matches and also of his family. The children were small! How time goes by…
Why do you live in the Sierras de Córdoba?
I came to the Sierras de Córdoba because I was looking for a better place to live. The reasons were intimate and had nothing to do with the physical place itself.
The truth is that, linked to photography, I discovered the region little by little and found landscapes and customs that today inspire me.
How has your art evolved?
I have been working in the field of photography for over 30 years. For a long time, I worked for private clients and companies to whom I offered my photography services.
But within me, there was always a call to take my own images and explore the possibility that photography could stand out as a work of art. About 7 years ago, I made the decision to stop taking pictures for “others” and devote all my efforts to my own images.
It was a difficult process during which I had to say no to many job offers. But today, I see with the path I have taken that it was a good decision that allows me to show what surrounds me with a personal vision. The focus is on the landscapes, customs, and people of Argentina in general and Cordoba in particular.
What inspires House of Jasmines and El Colibri in your art?
House of Jasmines and the Estancia El Colibri are two places of great prestige in tourism in Argentina.
The opportunity to visit the north of Argentina and then exhibit the selection of photos at House of Jasmines was extraordinary. The finished and framed photos can be integrated very well with the architecture and decoration of the place.
As for El Colibri, thanks to my proximity of only 20 km, I have the constant opportunity to photograph the sierras and horses that are so characteristic of rural Argentine life.
This proximity makes it relatively easy to make unique images of this beautiful part of the country.
