La Cueva emerged during the introspective year after I spent after having left the pace and artificiality of London´s streets to seek refuge amidst the forest trees of the Chilterns countryside. An investigation into the camera obscura as a symbol for the unconscious and photography as a meditative tool, this journey came about at a time where I was in need of deep healing and reconnection with my self. 

Everything about the camera obscura process embodies the need to slow down and become more sensorially aware, questioning a modern world seemingly more fixated on artificiality than a connection to Nature.
