My work explores the relationship between man and nature, consumption of natural resources and social conflict.

I approach the topic of Earth (or more specifically man’s relationship to it) by looking at how consumption creates the conditions for further destruction of the earth in the developing world. More importantly, I examine how this relationship foments poverty, violence and political chaos.

Our world is changing before our eyes and we are not always able to appreciate the scale of these historic changes in the confines of the environments in which we find ourselves. While Peru emanates beauty, it is also a territory intersected by challenges and problems. “The loss of our natural resources is incalculable”.
