Ron’s father was a Belgian diplomat married to a mixed race Mexican. Their child’s only stable place an airy, large but cozy house in Tijuana where he was sent every year for vacation with his grandparents and where Spanish, English and American were spoken.

The seemingly traditional approach, reveals, after closer acquaintance, a uniqueness of the artist’s perception of the world. His photographs are specific due to unique emotions and atmosphere, he focuses mainly on composition. An abstract reality, one could say.
