A PLACE TO DISAPPEAR
by PABLO LERMA

A Place to Disappear is a visual project that explores man’s absence from the primitive landscape in the Earth. Imagining a near future, where the humans will disappear from this planet but come back to Earth centuries later.

The project focuses on the traces of utopian landscapes in transformation and extinction, and combines them with vernacular photographs from expeditions in the 19th century that documented the same locations.

Consequently, the sequence collapses space and time in a way that reflects the relationship between the archive and human memory. The visual narrative also reveals the impossibility of a fixed landscape and taps into the viewers’ imaginations.

A Place to Disappear has been nominated in 2017 for the FIRST BOOK AWARD by MACK Editions. The project was also featured in Ain't Bad Magazine.
