Fractal geometry is the language of nature. It is the form of expression of the Universe, in contrast to the forms of classical geometry that make up artificial creation.

Héctor Garrido has been taking aerial photographs for twenty-five years and his images make up a rich world where the search for geometry and the message have set the tone. His series on fractals and the language of the Earth are known worldwide. All his work is done camera in hand, on small planes or helicopters.

When the curtains of the camera sound, something unrepeatable has happened. The landscape, the photographed object, has lived an instant of communion with the photographer who remained leaning on the viewfinder. That form of energy that we know as light has traveled to the sensitive material of the camera and has been absorbed and converted into imperishable information. The time has stopped completely for once. What the photographer saw through the viewfinder, that then, is now part of everyone's memory. There begins the magic of photography.
