Manuel Alvarez Diestro
my work is a journey to those territories that i find when i travel. i am fundamentally connected to random worldwide locations that i discover when i walk, cycle or take any form of transportation. my main interest is within the built landscape and in its many forms which evokes a narrative as i move from place to place. i believe that the more we recognize the aesthetic value in what we build and transform with its many contradictions, the more likely we will understand ourselves. i see the human imprint in the land as a reflection of who we are and use film and photography to unveil its beauty.
