As far as the eyes can see

As far as the eyes can see, is a series of experimental photographic prints created from layers of aerial thermal images of the ocean. Each print challenges the conceived idea of divided oceans to propose it as a single body of water; threatened by pollution, global warming and ultimately causing climate change. This phenomenon has had catastrophic effects such as devastating hurricanes, erosion, and species extinction. It is precisely under this new conception that this photographic series arises. In the images, a marked difference is imposed on the traditional reference with which the ocean is linked, displacing the blue for shades of bright colors such as red, orange, and yellow. These photographs are a clear reference of the current situation of the increase in temperature in the water, a phenomenon increasingly documented by researchers and documented with scientific data. The works aim to develop awareness of this issue as something urgent and alarming that transcends geographical and political borders.
