Gaia

A large part of Héctor Garrido's work is linked to the environment. Throughout his life he has professed great respect for the nature that surrounds us and for more than twenty-five years he has worked and lived in Doñana, one of the most important National Parks in Europe, dedicated to photography and the observation of nature. He has traveled the five continents of the planet accompanying scientific expeditions and completing his own personal search. For Garrido, we are one with nature.

I had dreamed of taking a picture in which the moon was like a huge egg in a nest of storks, to play with all the symbology that it encloses and I chose this isolated nest, whose horizon towards the East was the huge plain of the marsh. I waited until the day when the moon's rise coincided with the sunset and I calculated the position where I had to be at the precise moment in which the moon was in the nest. And just then, one of the storks began to flutter giving the sensation of stalking to hatch on a huge egg: the moon.
