earth from my river  1998

This series describes in a poetic way the work of the ceramic artist Izer Camos and the mythical world of the Amazonas and the people living there. The photographs document the process of how she scoops the clay from the river that she turns into magical works of art.  Her creations are inspired by her surroundings and reflect the organic shapes of fruits and seeds.
