Millions of years ago the Amazon Basin was a huge sea whose waters used to run toward the Pacific Ocean. It was then when Los Andes mountain range emerged to the surface causing a continental water movement and addressing its course to the opposite side toward the Atlantic Ocean. This event transformed the south American topography forever and produced one of the more complex river system of the planet.
Agua del Pacífico is a journey through the Amazon Basin carrying a volume of water from its old estuary in the Peruvian Pacific to the current delta in the Brazilian Atlantic, re-circulating prehistoric and ancient stories with multiple realities of todays’ Amazon region. Along the journey three thousand photographs were produced using the water taken from rivers as a photography lens. The water taken in the Pacific cost was interchanged in different Amazonian rivers until reaching the Atlantic Ocean where water was definitely returned to the sea.
