The FISH Series expresses personal preferences and a vision of the possibility of something fantastic, present in our everyday life, in a realistic way.
The framing of each image is rational, centered, stressing the interest in documenting part of Uruguay’s architectural heritage. The Fish is a fantastic irruption which, far from distorting, creates a focus that draws the attention on the place.
