Examine how when we travel trough the inspirational landscapes created by cattle growing and farming we see them as part of the biological, social and aesthetic environments and that the links between people and human-made “nature” ignore the fact that what this landscapes in most cases don’t preserve the ecological subsystem an are plain and simple deforestation.

Shot in the potato and cattle fields in Cundinamrca Colombia and in the ancient fields of the frailejon in el Paramo del Guerrero (alpine tundra ecosystem). Bathed by the changing sunlight Forests presents a topography of human redundancy and the ongoing resistance of organic forms. The rugged reality to be embraced (a. rimbaud)

Forests is second in the 3 part series The Business of Spaces.
