Human beings without a particular external identity, but with an esoteric one. All are present in their own truth, expressed in a directly intimate way. The photographic process is a spontaneous choreography based on empathy and dominated by rhythm, transcending space and time. In this new vertical time, according to Plotinus, beauty identifies with spirit. The same applies for the images of nature. And the photographs reflect those common qualities of the Being in humans and nature. This series was created in spiritual communities and national parks around the globe the last ten years, raising questions on Human Ecology.
