This is an essay about the sea of South America and the condition of its beauty today. In the last twenty years the sea landscape changed a lot, because of many reasons it isn´t the same I knew when I was a child. The world population´s big increase and the need of contrasting daily life´s stress are some of the reasons why human being begun expanding his seashore´s destinations. He progressively quit the habit of visiting the same beaches every year and searched and took coasts before absolutely inhabited. So much that it almost doesn´t left virgin beaches, and human trace is irreversibly landscape´s organic part.
I could find really exotic and desolated beaches, but all of them civilized. This is the sea I see now, that it keeps being beautiful but in another way. (The word mareo means dizziness. In Spanish it belongs to the sea word family).
I was born in 1974 in Mendoza, Argentina. There I´ve studied cinema at Escuela Regional Cuyo de Cine y Video. In 2006 I moved to Buenos Aires and studied cinema´s photography at Professional Formation´s Center SICA, and then photojournalism at Graphic Reporters´ Argentina Asociation (ARGRA). In 2011 I did BSAS Photoworkshop with Marco Vernaschi, Leo Liberman and Gustavo Jononovich. Nowadays I work as a free lance photographer in different national media.
