Riverland is a neighborhood that sits on the far west side of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It could be any other one as it's a bridge. A corner in between massive modernization, gentrification and a grasp of desire for living amid not man made landscape and untouched trees. There, you can still find 5 acres of natural woodland, voraciously protected by the community in 2015 against a proposed development of 14 homes. I've been working on this project over a year and it has taken me to internal places I wish to reflect outwards. These photos aim to represent the constant push and pull between preservation and the economic pressure for more. As it's been seen in human history, certain ways of living can fade little by little, right in front of our eyes. Riverland is one, but it could be anywhere.

Slow down, please
