Born and raised in Argentina, Pablo has been living in Miami Beach for over a decade. When asked about the reasons why, he'll say it was his destiny. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to follow traditional careers he found out it was surrounded by nature where he would feel self realized, nothing else was needed. However, on his 33th birthday, he reluctantly accepted a gift from his mother, a photographic camera. Even though he had no idea about how to operate it, the moment he hung it from his neck he had this strange feeling of belonging, he knew it was the beginning of a journey. Without financial resources for a formal education in photography he relied on whatever information he could find in books and the internet. Gradually he began to realize that photography could be a bridge between his inner vision and the outside world. It became an obsession, a drug. Influenced by his frequent lucid dreams, synchronicities and other similar experiences, we see in his pictures an attempt to show us this reality with a sense of something beyond it, of something surreal, magical. In his portrait works we find an intention to reflect both the simplicity and complexity of the human experience, relationships, emotions. What seems to be behind all of them is the search for meaning, for the meaning of life, for the meaning of love. He believes that photography can be used as a device to open up and expand our perception.

In spite of his very short career, he already has an exhibition of his work in one of Miami's greatest art galleries, Zenith.  He runs his own studio where he has worked for major fashion designers and artists, and where he's developing different personal and commercial projects.  When asked about what his goals are for his professional career he says he has only one: "I wanna take the most beautiful picture in the world, and give it away to everyone".
