This project start in 2016 and has been inspired by a poetry of Roberto Juarroz "El silencio que queda entre dos palabras" - The silence beetween words. Poetry that became a tale, tale that became a story told through a series of digital pictures. Pictures that are linked together,representing a cycle; the cycle of our Mother Nature, the silence and sense of melancholic loneliness of winter, where trees and humans are in silent contemplations.
In this series I preferred to use post processing that provide to emphasize the tones in black and white,
making them much more dramatic and a little touch of poetry feeling. I also working in this series in digital overlaying texture to create surreal situations that are able to affect the emotions.
