How do you feel the membrane of a city? How do you feel the planet covered with another skin that is not yours? What textures, what accidents, what stories, which old and new inhabitants?
From questions such as these is that my work develops: the conceptualization of the cities and their landscapes not only as spaces singled out by my lens, but as part of a body whose life extends beyond the obvious: subtle shots that are part of the whole, and make it possible.
I stopped to observe how, in spite of the effort of the progress that natural body is expressed in each space of a city, its spontaneous essence is presented before my eyes and its appearance makes me remember where we come from and of what we are really made of. My eye my lens are those who are emotionally aligned to capture that natural hidden world that the man is trying to sectorize but the powerful and impeccable nature does not give up, in each area of the city.
In some way, I understand my work as the reading of the coffee ground: in the images that I capture, there is past, present and a future that is intuitively, the forces of nature and humanity that inhabits in it are present. Both coexist in the city, but they run at different times and their moments in my lens are nothing more than a glorification of their individuality. This also allows me to be in a specific place and at the same time in many, that is to say, in the unity of the earth, its elements and its forms. In a system of layers, I attempt to uncover them one by one, from the great panoramic up to a tiny fraction. The importance of the part, the detail in our coexistence with nature and its thorough search, almost scientific.
In this aspect, it is art and science: a single task, as it is the art of abstraction, and at the same time continuing of the human need to see and review, to understand, to make up the mind, to prepare for the contingencies, for the migrations, to the appearance, the transformation and the disappearance of the species.
My art is an art of conscience of the world. My camera is guided by my soul, finding in the different places of a city something that makes us feel, vibrate and connect with our mother earth, our great Gaia.
Miami, my place in the world today, is the beginning of an incredible journey towards my inner as well as the cities trying to discover Gaia in each one of them. My conscious journey began here, but efforts while living in the embody where its magnetism invites me to tell a new story. This is precisely Urban Nature Project for me: an essentially vital project that brings the element of surprise to the line of existence.
