Art has always walked close to nature. The aesthetic experience is the product of imitation or independence. Regardless of this artistic and philosophical debate, we present the photographic series Distant Natures of Manuel Álvarez Diestro.
In this series there are shown oceans of trees, which absorb the attention is. They are dense and impenetrable. In one corner, Alvarez Diestro captures a tower or a building, which contrasts with the rest of the image. With Distant Natures the Mexican photographer illustrates the isolation of human being within the cities, and the lack of connection with nature that surrounds him, even more, from which he comes.
Thus, the human being remains captive, prisoner in his own lair, and limited on what he calls reality.
