    Bronze in Fine Art/Landscape

The project is a personal interpretation of the landscape of the dramatic Irish coast. It consists of images captured in high resolution digital format, using filters, Neutral density and degraded to achieve long exposures even during the day creating an almost unreal atmosphere giving a feeling of melancholy and loneliness but at same time showing the incredible beauty of the rugged landscape so common in this European island.

Sidarta Corral, born in Mexico City in 1972, grew up in the Veracruz state capital Xalapa and on a family organic farm in the nearby municipality of Xico. His vocation as a photographer started at young age when he started using a Mamiya 35mm and reading photography books belonging to his Mother. He received an alternative education at active primary schools with a focus on the arts and home-schooling. He later went on to learn the art from acclaimed photographers and professors at the renowned university for Fine Arts, Universidad Veracruzana.
