The Fifty Dots gallery will soon host one of the most thoughtful and poetic photographic series of the artist from Barcelona.
The artist Cesar Ordóñez shows us his most poetic side in this exhibition. It makes us reflect on the bond that human beings have through the concept of island, although on the surface they appear disconnected from their environment and solitary, in the interior they interconnect between them. Play for it with the title of the series and the places photographed. And it shows us that we are all related, between ourselves and with nature.
 

Description of project by Fifty Dots Gallery

"Nothing, absolutely nothing makes sense, if we do not admit that people are not islands, independent of each other; every person is a piece of the continent, a part of the whole. "

Thomas Merton, 1955
