We stand with Ukraine 🇺🇦 STOP WAR
Photo Exhibition


The photographs from the series “Cortes” are the story told through the eyes of Cortes, a fictional character who attempted to cross the Pacific to the new world. Cortes is the name of the island in British Columbia named after Hernán Cortés, a Spanish conquistador. The real Cortes never visited the island, yet it bears his name. I decided to create my own “parallel world”—the dream of a person who, in an attempt to break away from social constrains, sails away to the unknown, but in reality, looks for a means to return to his real self and his personal freedom by exploring the landscape of the Cortes island.
