Neotropical Dynamics (Part I)

Exploring ideas of fertility, chaos and regeneration, "Neotropical Dynamics" is an ongoing photo series that offers a glimpse into the lush ecosystems of the Atlantic Forest, characterized by its high biodiversity and endemism. This series marks the first of three acts, and focuses mainly on terrestrial biomes, namely flora and minerals.

The morphological and textural structure of plants, soil, wood and stone is the starting point of my reasearch. Wandering deeper into the forest, shifting in and out of abstraction between detail and totality, familiar forms become deconstructed as unusual ones emerge; Illusory bodies and limbs resembling creatures that inhabit landscapes that are as much exterior territories as they are emotional states and inner worlds populated by fantasy and myths.
