In the pictorial backdrop usually seen on tourist websites, the artist plants photographs of structures he took in his environment. In an act of exposure and concealment, the artist creates a fantasy that goes beyond hollow and saccharine beauty.
A fantasy of a place loaded with political conflicts and social gaps, where you could one day visit and enjoy without threat or fear. In this link between the local and the ideal, the contrast is emphatic in the intensity of light, the color palette and textures that comprise each. This is a visual link that enhances elements present in one and absent in the other one. 
Landscapes designed by men, or destroyed by them, lofty sites and those on the brink of collapse are together transformed into an image of a new and complex landscape.
