Observe the state of confusion and permanent alert of a disoriented photographer in an unknown place. Immersed in uncontrollable situations. Evoking apparently common landscapes and spaces. Here, the human factor is used as a reiterative ingredient of straightforward images from an author unable to separate the emotional from the objective. Photographs desperately taken during a 28 day inquiry in Ciudad de Guatemala.


“This is the account of how all was in suspense, all calm, in silence; all motionless, still, and the expanse of the sky was empty. This is the first account, the first narrative. There was neither man, nor animal, birds, fish, crabs, trees, stones, caves, ravines, grasses, nor forests; there was only the sky. The surface of the earth had not appeared. There was only the calm sea and the great expanse of the sky. There was nothing brought together, nothing which could make a noise, nor anything which might move, or tremble, or could make noise in the sky. There was nothing standing; only the calm water, the placid sea, alone and tranquil. Nothing existed. There was only immobility and silence in the darkness, in the night”. Popol Vuh, Chapter 1.
