The pandemic surprised Argentine photographer Alejandro Chaskielberg as he travelled with his daughter Lara through Patagonia. Determined not to return to the city, they faced a long quarantine by exchanging the comforts of their home in Buenos Aires for a small house in the woods where they went through the harsh Patagonian winter.
Lara made her third-grade school with a slow internet connection and no video. They were months of unprecedented creative expansion for both of them where they learned to pick apples, cook mushrooms and raise hares in stark contrast to their usual lifestyle and other situation in cities around the world. In this context, the Natur-e project was born, a new pixelated nature visible through the screens where the fire is used as a metaphor to burn the old normality.
Natur-e is a visual diary of those months spent in the woods, in which Chaskielberg and his daughter tell the process of adapting to this territory and how they remained in contact with the world thanks to technology. A new form of feeling connected with nature and with the world, thanks to the digital interactions that characterize our lives today.
