The landscape is a conceptual idea, with its own cultural roots and as diverse as the civilizations and the cultural frameworks that support them.

The series of photographs MIMESIS addresses the landscape as a setting for human productive activity. The overexploitation of natural resources affects the degradation of the landscape, provoking in the viewer the need to adapt in its perception, by establishing new landscape panoramas that we assume as a consequence of social and economic progress. A "contemporary landscape" that is part of the growing need to deplete natural resources and that has long since become part of our daily visual memory.
