Who is Altair?

Altair Cerda

I don’t remember the first moment when I held a camera, but being the son of a photographer it certainly was at an early age. Judging by the pictures made, I was fairly good at it. When I was ten I started doing animated films with a good friend, from there a more conscious interest in visual art developed in me. When I had to choose my studies, I went for Architecture rather than Film-making because I knew I could always go back to the latter.

While finishing my studies in Mexico City, moving to Liechtenstein and eventually Germany, photography was my main tool to capture life through a lens, even if the result was static. In recent years, I’ve come back to the field of visual art through visualizations for architecture. With this I’ve tried to share the intrinsic narrative that visual art has, but this time to represent the story of architecture.
