The Simulation (El Simulacro)
These photographs are part of an ongoing essay that is called “Cultural Simulation”. The essay pretends to observe, thanks to landscape photography, the relationship between men and space in contemporary societies (their personal spaces and the urban landscape more specifically). The urban landscape contains a countless amount of spaces that we “inhabit”, or rather transit them, daily and continually. Artificial spaces constructed in this the “era” of the “culture of the emptiness”, spaces that become contexts of simulation and are converted in non-places.
