Ink injection on cotton paper.

In the series "Domain of the visible", the landscape as one of the devices built in the domain of what we see emerges as a manifestation of everything that encompasses or may comprise our sight. Starting from the idea that the "landscape" is a category that we all individuals have, there are countless ways to build them.

Through the photographic practice, the landscape can be presented in different ways in which the landscape’s dimension is the dimension of perception. Here is where varied interpretations of the visible space can be made in relation to each being. Here the subjectivity of the photography around the landscape emerges.

The term "landscape" read in such a well-intentioned way, deals with too many areas where many researchers such as sociologists, geographers, biologists, politicians, and others who study it assume the complexity of this wide-ranging word.

"Through photography I intend to obtain this term from the territory. This will inevitably tackle the field from a social perspective through these meetings (travel). In consequence, the photography emerges as a fundamental in the travel periods, working with light as the element that becomes the presence of the photographer."

Not during the search, but by accidentally finding a signal, an error reappears, one that has been used before – making much more sense to use light as an aesthetic element, as something artificial, as something necessary that illuminates the darkness, for example. You could call it an error or a misplaced decision, but finally is a mistake. To come up with a light source that occupies that much voltage in Meliquina, a place where caring for the vital sources such as water and artificial light (not as vital but necessary) prevails.

Who photographs is the person that transforms part of the surface with light and shows what happens inside the spatiality that is taking over the place. Terms such as territoriality enter therein. Clearly the set of subjects, areas, lights or objects might or not be in relation with each other, but somehow they are interacting with the place and therefore construct a territory. It is as if the camera is finishing its part.

Through contemplation and the subsequent use of lighting - that goes beyond its manipulation, as an aesthetic element - the latter becomes a mark of individuality, a presence. The most distant or detached way in which the photographer appears.
