This project narrates a journey through my own habitat. Inspired by wildlife documentaries and using the same language and storytelling techniques applied to describe natural environments and faraway places, I document the commonness and normality of everyday life in a local, urban and domestic place.
Through photographic sequences that transform landscape into portrait and viceversa, the images from the project describe a world and its inhabitants. A place in which the continuous roar of the traffic, just like the breaking of waves, the blowing of the wind or any other natural phenomenon, reveals fleeting moments of calm, beauty and tranquility.
By following the trail of the “natural” in the “unnatural” the hunting is recreated in the search for dialogue or confrontation with the space in which we live in.
