AIR is related to Andres and Reyes but not only with the mix of oxygen, nitrogen and argon. From our point of view, this mix is not transparent.
Through technique we try to express a concrete moment of reality in photography. From our experience as architects, we look for this reality with the most naturality possible. This constant search make us explore other fields like; material definition, scene lighting, etcétera; the story to tell and the spectator´s eye are common factors in visualization world.
