“Explore” is a project to get out of my comfort zone in urban photography, and to experiment with nature. It was born as a concrete idea, and the process was totally intuitive. During some excursions, I took photographs of the motifs I felt were curious. This project has a certain emotional side because hiking is one of my passions. The focus was not showing the Canary Islands’ the Canary landscapes in a spectacular way, but to serve as an invitation to the viewers to explore them. I look for the unusual and , the unexpected. Saturated colors stand out, especially different tones of brown and green. “Explore” throws me out of the street photography field , where I normally present, and works as my personal introduction gallery to the nature that we find in the Canary Islands.
