‘Piedra y Sombra (Rock and Shadow)’ represents a series of analog photographs utilizing the process of multiple exposures; a catalyst for multi-media projects emphasizing the impact of cultural diversity within natural surroundings. During excursions abroad, the project coincided with the documentation of botanical gardens, urban foliage, and the decayed landscapes of the Bronx.
Interaction of overlapping textures revealed a previous non-existent chronology that transcended the assignment into 3-dimensional objects, wearable art, vertical panoramas, and video indicative of the fusion of organic fauna with modern civilization; an archival anthology that consecrates natures’ significance as an impetus for artistic sustenance.
