My first foray into understanding my relationship with a place. Made over the course of three years in the coastal towns of Higuerote, Chirimena and La Guaira in my native Venezuela. It is an exploration of the colours and light and dynamics of a place I have known all my life; an attempt to understand the theatrical nature of the beach, with its sand stage and water backdrop, as well as its surrounding geography and current dichotomy of luxury secondary residences and the side-effects of a crumbled economy and culture.
The beach also happens to be the physical limit between land and water, the gateway to faraway lands, exile and migration being an inevitable reality for most venezuelans.
The further expansion of this project was halted by my departure from the country.
As it stands, this project comprises 60 photographs divided in three sections.
