Each culture and each people gives a specific response to the external landscape, a response that is always filtered, however, by the internal models that the body and history have been gradually defining. The one who knows his own profound models is wise, but the one who manages to place them at the service of the best causes is even wiser.
(Mario Rodríguez Cobos – “Silo”).
This photographic portfolio “MEMENTO’S HUMAN LANDSCAPE” is inspired by a short but intense journey made with the Humanist Movement in Florence that I always carry with great affection in my heart. The Humanist Movement is a voluntary international organization which, through the instrument of active nonviolence and non-discrimination, promotes human development in a social and personal sense. It is not an institution and has no offices anywhere in the world. It was born in Argentina in 1969, taking inspiration from the ideology that refers to the New Humanism or Universalist Humanism of its founder Mario Rodríguez Cobos, known under the literary pseudonym of “Silo”.
The photographic journey portrays the images that represent some of my memories of the “Human Landscape” in which I grew up.
