18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Santa Isabel en el Mundo de la Modernidad

In this photo, I tried to create a space between the world of modernity and classic. It has always been my dream to be able to do things that have an impact on the depths of art. In my photography, I am very much influenced by the art of painting and I am very much inspired by paintings from different periods of history. This photo is inspired by a painting by Francisco de Zurbarán. This girl was a very different and very good person and she prevented the war between the two kings in her time. I would love to be able to pay homage to this successful woman of my time and I tried to write a story for her and keep her memory alive. The work of promoting peace is anything but a calm and quiet endeavor. It takes a clear mind, a steady spirit, and a brave soul to intervene between people whose emotions are so aroused that they are ready to destroy one another.
