For most of my life my family has been disconnected geographically, because of this we have all been affected by the experience of separation. It is travel that bridges the distance, and helps ease the feeling of displacement.

 

This series Fiebre del Paraíso/Fever of Paradise,is a collection of images shot while traveling in a car. The road is an in-between space, and as I transition through these spaces I am often nostalgic, contemplative, and recounting memories.

 

These photographs are an expression of emotions brought on by traveling with the hopes of connecting the viewer with my transitional state of mind. Travel provokes meditation, as you watch the lane markers or landscape pass by, emotions emerge out of the meditative state induced by this visual experience.
