Official Cuatro Cienegas Calendar (2008)
The local government invited me to photograph this beautiful oasis in the middle of the northern mexican desert in 2007. At the end of that weekend enough photographs were taken to complete this calendar for 2008, distributed in the state of Coahuila to show the wonders of our land thus helping create conscious for the preservation of this fragile ecosystem unique in the world.National Geographic made this place known to the rest of the world in the Magazine of October 1995 and since then several international agencies, such as NASA, have been interested in this fantastique place.
This project was possible with the kind cooperation of Juan Carlos Ibarra (Cuatro Cienegas Flora & Fauna Area Protection). Thanks !
