Fernández received no formal education. He bought his first camera at the age of 27. Apart from his personal projects he has worked as a wedding and birthday photographer. Unable to live exclusively from photography, he also needs to work as a taxi driver to survive. His photographs are a self-portrait of his reality, reflecting in turn how people try to survive in Mexico. His work has been exhibited in 2010 in the exhibition Resilience, at the Cervantes Institute in Mexico City.
