My first photography lessons were taken by the teacher Manuel Álvarez Bravo. Don Manuel is one of the most important and famous photographers in contemporary photography.
Surrounded by friends such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, Tina Modotti, Henri Cartier-Bresson or Ansel Adams among others, he also had the most exciting life knowledge that any teacher anywhere could have and was willing to share.
He was my personal teacher for 5 years that I had the opportunity to live with him until shortly before his death on October 19, 2002
He introduced me to personalities of the stature of Héctor García, Graciela Iturbide, Enrique Bostelman, Mariana Yampolsky and the Great Leo Mátiz.
All of them in a more social than school environment. In meetings or meals where he always took me into account.
Later it was through painting and friendships that Renaissance painting fascinated me and it was when I began to apply the knowledge and teachings of the paintings of the great masters of the brush through the lens to photography.
In reality, it has been outside the institutions where I have been able to learn more about photography than in any of the courses or workshops that I have taken.
I attended Master Class with matesteros like Sebastião Salgado, Steve McCurry and Annie Leibovitz, all of them in Mexico.
