About This Work

Humble vegetation, subdued and controlled, urban. Plants that we do not pay attention to, a reminder of an increasingly weak and remote link with nature. Leaves and branches relocated in an even more humanized context, surrounded by fabrics and plastics and openly observed by the eye of a lens.

The real protagonist of my works is the human being, although it is not as worthy of appearing in them as a simple twig.
