Color Piedra Caliza (ongoing)
“Dear, I know nothing of
Either, but when I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape”
Color Piedra Caliza explores the constant changes between mankind, nature and the unfinished blend between the two. Set in Colombia in the middle of the prosperous valleys of the northern Andes mountains, this series navigates a territory of absence and ruins, where the unthoughtful development of the Caliza (limestone) industry left a vast trauma in the small towns around the region.
