The 16th century offered us the greatest concentration of relevant women in the history of humanity. Influent women who silently moved the policy threads. Beyond their emotional condition and its temple, the 16th century women supported their dominion in their feminine nature. In this series, it is part of an official iconography, without aspiring to replicate and without indicating the exact reference so that the viewer appeals to his own imaginary; with an arquetípical approach, revealing the female features and making use of a light that rescues the Renaissance pictorial setting. These are contemporary portraits, visual appropriations, which mobilize reflection on the exact nature of the preponderance of the feminine, which is not another that its connection with the original creation.
The Seminole people, a tribe of Creek origin with a language deeply rooted in Muskogean, found their sanctuary in northern Florida during the latter half of the 18th century. These lands, once the realm of the Apalachee and Timucua, became a refuge against the backdrop of European colonization and internal power struggles.The term 'Seminole,' perhaps derived from the Creek word 'simanó-li,' encapsulates the essence of "separatist" or "runaway." This spirit of defiance and pursuit of freedom resonates in the land they chose to inhabit — the Everglades. A vast expanse of thickets and wetlands provided them with protection and welcomed those fleeing the chains of slavery and the strife of colonization.In this series, infrared photography unveils a deeper layer of the Seminole story. Much like the unseen layers of their history, infrared captures the world beyond the visible spectrum — a realm that remains hidden in plain sight. The black and white images, shot with infrared film, present the trees as metaphors for the Seminole souls: timeless, resilient, and deeply intertwined with the history of their lands.Step into a world where nature's sentinels witness stories of survival, resistance, and the indomitable spirit of the Seminoles.
