How do we perceive our surroundings and how do we interact with each other? To understand the identity of a city we must first take a closer look to human association and the meanings we give to the urban landscape. Modern cities are filled with people but yet devoid of human influence; individuals are today more isolated than ever before.

In the series "Estudio de Luz: A Study on Reflection and Transparency", the over-saturated colors and apparent  double-exposures are easily dismissed as digital alterations, but these photographs are direct takes on what the camera sees through colored filters. While placing colored filters in front of the camera, I generate reflections and transparencies that force different angles to converge into a single frame all whilst proposing a more profound act of seeing.

The playful process brings together otherwise-unrelated planes onto which varied levels of existence merge; individuals, surfaces and moments are bound to collide and interact with each other.
