Malparaíso is an imaginary place, an already lost Eden that, as an artifice, must consolidate a ‘place’ that is part of the creative experience. The world, inscribed in the relativity of time, is seen only in fragments, but these fragments, as if they were the bifurcations of an infinite road, sow warning signals until the book is tinged with a vague melancholy, a tableau vivant of our delirious idleness, a subtle allegory of our lethargy.

Exploring the classic motif of paradise, years ago I embarked on a journey that is as wide-ranging as it is personal, where racism, identity, migration, nature under siege, violence and precariousness always appear as the strong threads of my photographs. My images suggest anger and pain, but they also express the beauty, hope and humanity that are part of a complex reality.
