The Promised Wetland series shows different wetlands in conflict throughout Chile, displaying that we are on the verge of losing these paradises and raising awareness about their global relevance. A denunciation of the current condition of these sanctuaries, a contrast between a landscape in harmony or the annihilation of the ecosystem; opening the question of the transcendental in photography and inevitably placing the viewer in a position. In a first instance an idyllic, atmospheric, minimal, concrete and at the same time diffuse sensation is perceived, at a closer look, a truth that many times tries to hide appears, urban sprawl, pollution; a stranded ship or a high tension tower, at the same time, the ship seems so small, the landscape will always prevail, the destruction of the environment, eventually entails ours too; the future does not exist without wetlands, the life of everyone on the planet depends on their restoration and conservation.
