“Vegetal resistance”

My series on Urban Forestry for Lampoon Magazine.
November, 2020.

‘Vegetal resistance’ is an ongoing visual research investigating significant and curious examples of green resistance in different urban scenarios of London. From some old and well-known historical trees to other anonymous bushes and greenery, generally most of them appear to be suffocated and trapped in the urban context, living in a physical sense of constraint. Partially led by the human hand, others have been activated a process of appropriation of the surrounding sole, growing around - instinctively and not - and generating a process of natural invasion of the built environment.

“Beyond the walls of Oaxaca

My series on Oaxaca for SUITCASE Magazine.
April, 2020.

“We'd spent seven hours on an overnight bus before we reached the city of Oaxaca. It was at once elegant and colourful, layered with the kind of rich culture and history that has earned it recognition as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Moved by the need to take shelter from the sun, we ventured beyond some of the city's vibrant, colonial facades and preserved balconies, and into buildings reincarnated as libraries, galleries and guesthouses. It was a more peaceful atmosphere inside, a seemingly slower pace of life that runs in parallel to the frenetic streets.

In the former monastic grounds of the Church of Santo Domingo, we stumbled across the Jardìn Etnobotànico, a two-acre botanical garden that showcases flora native to Oaxaca, Mexico's most biodiverse region. Walking through the grounds at sunset, rays reflected off the yellow stone of the 16th-century church, bathing the cacti in an ethereal light.

Here, with the noise of the outside world hushed, we felt a deep sense of spirituality. Our sense of time and space dilated, and we could appreciate every detail as never before.”
