In SHADE OF SACRED TREES, I search for primordial visions of plants, which have another way of measuring time, different from our own. This folio collects visual notes of partial landscapes in Los Angeles, Anza-Borrego, New York, San Diego, and Portland. With oblique quotations about botany from the work of Jorge Luis Borges, presented in Spanish and English, SHADE OF SACRED TREES merges a longtime love for the practice of translation with an increasing curiosity for the surfaces of botany. The parallel acts of photography and translation form a symphonic work, cross-germinating words and images.
