Brief synopsis of the project:
In the prelude to the twentieth century, Pedro arrives in Tierra del Fuego to photograph the marriage of Mr. Porter, a powerful landowner, with Sara a girl who becomes her obsession. Hoping to capture her innocent beauty, he betrays the forces that dominate these lands who strip Pedro of his privileges, forcing him to integrate into a society built upon the genocide of the SelKnam people, of which he becomes a complicit participant through his images.
