One of the first photographers in the Philippines of Filipino nationality to gain a reputation. Little is known about his life but he studied Fine Arts in the Philippines. A book with 37 of his photographs "Recuerdos de Filipinas" was published in Barcelona (A. Robert Lopez, 1895).
A collection of his work is held by the Biblioteca Nacional de España (National Library of Spain) and came from material for the Exposición de Filipinas (1887).
