photo collage on glass
The name of my project is a pun between two words.
Amor (love) and Mar (sea). Additionally it references a poem (Poesía en A mayor) by Jorge Eduardo Eielson, one of my favorites and greatest peruvian artist. The poem describes the relationship between love and the sea, whereby one word functions as a metaphor for the other. This project was conceived in honor to the sea that extends in front of my city and I personally embrace it as a farewell before I left my home country. I have photographed the sea of Lima from three different points of the city: Chorrillos, La Punta and Ancon. The original presentation has been printed on glass and set in layers.
“...mirAndo siempre el mAr con Amor
como si morir
fuerA sólo no mirAr
o dejAr de AmAr”
