ULTRADISTANCIA is a fine art photographic project on travel and movement. Traveling without moving and the possibilities of perception we have about the world plays a paradox: we move over the world while been quiet but it is necessary a lot of movement to fix an image. This project is about taking infinite tours over our planet from the marvelous screens of Google Earth to the encounter of geometries, shapes and topographies, natural and humans. We can see there the thin edge between the alteration of the landscape by the action of man and the very power of nature that leaves it negligible. What the human eye sees, from satellites and computers or from the lens of a camera, is always a way of seeing.
