This series is simply a visual diary and response to the landscapes that surrounded me during a six-month period in South and North America. I was moved by the works of writers such as Gabriel García Marquez, Isabelle Allende and Frederica García Lorca and the magical realism that infuses their texts, attempting to understand and explore a continent that has historically been disturbed by various powers, from the initial Spanish invaders to more recent political unrest in countries including Argentina and Mexico. Whilst I was totally entranced by these vast landscapes and their inhabitants who were so welcoming, I also want to avoid creating an umbrella stereotype of places that I do not understand or have the experience of living in. The title, Tierra Sin Rostro translates to Faceless Earth or Land. I can only attempt at capturing the magic of these countries, and therefore largely avoided portraits apart from of my friend Lola who travelled with me.
