Abstract: I was traveling on Nicaragua’s long roads, wandering, strolling with a camera in my hands, trying to capture the soul of rejected places and buildings. “I have visited historic places where pirates and conquistadores had passed, lands colonized by the English, Spanish and American empires. I have visited wonderful cities and isolated villages, virgin forests and crowded markets. I saw grand churches and modest chapels which had celebrated joyous births and had seen war heroes leaving. " I fully dived into this surprising culture. Sometimes as a tourist, a rambler, or a stranger, I wanted to immortalize the last visible tracks of some historic events that filled the history and the Nicaraguan culture. I produced a series of photographs which generated a large reflection about the construction of my own personal history, my own memory and my own identity. This essay is a testimony of these reflections from a human being as well as an artistic experience point of view.
