From designboom: Spanish photographer Lola Guerrera has journeyed to the desert of Mexico in order to create her series 'Nebula Humilis'. The artist notes that
the excessive exploitation of natural resources in this particular region results from a world-wide encouraged materialism. This new interaction with
the desert has recently overridden the Mexican people's spiritual conception of this once-sacred space, bringing to the area a sense of imposed silence.
Guerrera's photographic series attempts to give a voice to this vast landscape.
