Miramar on Laguna Mar Chiquita
The objective of this project is to convey the feelings of nostalgia and anticipation. I like to start from the idea that every language is a form of nostalgia – a sign of something that has disappeared. My images refer to trivial fictions while describing real places. I like the mystery that this duality produces. I try visualise the energy I feel when I first encounter a place, a feeling of conflict and seduction at the same time.
I see these sites as unique and sacred, establishing a personal mythology based on historical facts and everyday experiences.
