Marco ... (frame)

The "Marco" project is an ongoing series documenting the disappearing landscape and the advance of development along the southwest coastlineof Baja California Sur, Mexico.

People are invited to memorialize the experience of occupying the landscape by framing a part of the scene and having their photo taken.

"Marco" is the Spanish word for frame. Framing a photo memorializes an experience. Frames capture, rarefy and lie. Marco sounds very much like the word "mark" in English. I encourage everyone to contribute photos to the Facebook page "Marco ..." which documents land that is marked for development.  Using a frame to engage in the moment is one way we can appreciate the wholeness of the space, our connection to the land and the impact of what we are about to lose.
