He studied Visual Journalism and Documentary Practices at the International Center of Photography in New York City under the guidance of Andrew Lichtenstein. He later graduated with a bachelor’s degree in History from the Universidad de los Andes and a master’s degree in History from University College London. He is focused on merging his photographic work with written journalism and historical research.

In 2022 he published La Época: Reportajes de una historia vetada (Ícono: Bogotá, 2022), a public history work that merges photography, history, and reportage to narrate and expose state censorship in early Cold War Colombia.
