Journey to the Center of the Earth

I started this ongoing project in July 2019 in a family trip around caves and ancient forest in the Basque Country in the north of Spain.

It is an imaginary journey in the search for MARI, the main deity of Basque mythology. She is the manifestation of the divinized forces of nature.

All beings and natural cycles of life are the different expressions of Mari. She is the whole nature.

Queen of the three kingdoms, Mineral, Vegetable and Animal and the four elements: Earth, Air, Water and Fire.

The pictures were taken with polaroid peel apart film and store in a box for several months until  Covid-19 hit.

I started working with the negatives during lockdown and at the same time I was reading the works by Jules Verne with my daughter, as a way to travel to another imaginary worlds.

The journey continues…
