Photographer Gerardo Klint Montiel,
"Nature does not only manifest by itself. Its representation before the rational world allows us to place ourselves outside our selves to try to satisfy the spirit's longings. How can we seize the cadence in the tidal wave of interior storms? How can we take a peek and freely throw ourselves into psychological nature? The instant as an event, to then experience subjective inner time. « Le monde réel ne peut satisfaire les aspirations de l’esprit », is a selection of works from the FINLAND series (2018-2022) made in Canada and Mexico.
