I’m happy to share with you that this photo from my long-term series: "Man and Earth", about climate change and our relationship with geography, was one of those selected by the British Journal of Photography for the exhibition Open Walls Arles 2020 which will take place in Arles, France, between June 26 and September 5, 2020.

"Man and The Earth – Latin America and the Caribbean Chapter" is a documentary and artistic exploration. A long-term project, which is underway - as well as the results and impacts of climate change - and which aims to research, witness and document an important issue in times of climate emergency: the relationship between human beings and geography. Since January 2018, I have traveled across the continent documenting this relationship. I hope that the result of this project will be used for anthropological, sociological, economic, geographical, historical, aesthetic and pedagogical purposes.
