This is a poetic documentary, made of light and shadow, through the outside to the inside, from the earth to the sharing.
From seed to seed, I followed the daily life of a Berber family in the Moroccan Essaouira region.
I observed the unchanging cycle linking them to this seemingly hostile land, that feeds them and their animals.
I was quite naturally invited to enter their home and share their table.
Fascinated by their sobriety, I tried to capture the poetry that reigns in their home.
The grace of the objects placed there, ennoblied by their simple utility.
Since 2017, the Caribbean city of Santa Marta, like all other cities in Colombia, has experienced a massive arrival of Venezuelan immigrants. Most of these refugees are in Colombia.
Far from the center, there is a popular area where these unwelcome neighbors have come to rest. Along a long-abandoned railway line, they live in a place no bigger than a dressing room in a upperclass home. There, I met Luis, his sister and her two children in front of their "house". Smiling radiantly despite their reality, they wanted to show their daily life. Without work, without friends, without resources, Luis was forced to start collecting plastic bottles, paper and cardboard to subsits.
Documentary series on Indian workers on a coffee plantation in Coorg in the Karnataka region, India.

The pacific ocean by the colombian coast is a unique place. The power of his waters is incredible, it's like a dark source full of energy and peace.
From the sea you can observe the intensity of the rain forest, you can feel her vibration when you are quietly immersing yourself into the warm density of his waters.
Between 3400 to 4200 altitude , I had the chance to discover a unique surrounding. El Paramo El Angel. This type of vegetation is mostly found in the Andes of Venezuela and Colombia. There you can find unique vegetal: The polylepis tree, the highest living plant with a trunk and of course the frailejones, the most representative plants of this protected area. They have a crown of rosette leaves covered with whitish hairs that protect from the cold, repel water and reflect excess solar radiation. This series of physiological adaptations is due to the drastic climatic conditions of the Andean highlands. They play a major role in the moorlands in absorbing water from the mist and conserving it.
