First. The colors are amazing; they look so vibrant the photo makes me feel like I was there watching. I find amazing that this setting...


That's right.
It is that time of the month when I begin to open my mouth.
But first things first. Thank you very much to those who commented on "Limosna III" and on lorrainemd 's "Peaceful Dreams" at…. Both photos showcased the sad reality some people are living around the globe. A reality some people are not willing to see and face.

I was reading the comments you generously left me on my photo, preparing myself to thank you personally... and then I came to this particular comment telling me that I know how to press a button and that the photo involved no skill at all.
Well, to the deviant who left me that comment: Thank you. I know I do not have talent and I'm not saying otherwise. I just took a photo of a person who was in front of me but she didn't notice I was taking a photo, or I wouldn't captured the expression she gave me. I will try to become a better photographer.

But somehow I feel very dissapointed right now.
Let's see a photo from a certain Manuel Alvarez Bravo:…
He only pressed the button. The dead person was just lying there.
Let's see something from a certain Mr.…
He only pressed a button. The forest and the mountais were already there.

If those two were just button pressers... I'll continue pressing the button until I achieve perfection just like they did.

My name is Hector Garza and I will be your guide into my mystical world.
Althought I began taking photos at the early age of 10, it was until almost two decades later when I realized I could use photography as a weapon.
A weapon that could help me make a statement to the world.
I have always been an ecologist and a humanist but it was during a trip to Cuatro Cienegas that everything became clear to me.
I was snorkeling inside a deserted Poza (a spring), the sun of the desert was burning my back, the endemic fish were swimming towards me... and then it hapened. I realized I wasn't in just a common Poza, I was swimming in my mother's womb and the water was her placenta.
She was feeding me.
She was giving me life.
She was teaching me all the knowledge I really needed.
And I learned what was really a necessity and what wasn't. Some people need the help of an hallucinogen such as peyote or ayahuasca to see that... I didn't. Those things were very clear to me and have been ever since. They were just there... soft speaking to be noticed for anyone who would care to listen.
And I did listen.

When I returned to the city I started to let go. I became ill and had to stay at the hospital for a couple of days...
I quit smoking the day I left the hospital.
I started drinking a lot of water and now I drink 4-5 liters during a normal day.

Then I realized everything around me is alive and started to care even for the smallest things. I joined Pronatura and started protecting the enviroment.

And now I not only want to protect the enviroment but also the traditions.
During the process I have learned a thing or two about the relationship between nature and mankind... and how everything we do affects the life of others.

My mission here is to create some awareness and to show you the little thing you thought you had forgotten.

Let me be like a Shaman and show you those things.
