Following on from Phantom, a virtual world based on a 3D scan of vegetation, and from 16 MM, an intimate, sensorial exploration of the forest through a travelling shot, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané has produced a black-and-white view of the dense foliage of the Mata Atlântica, a virgin forest in south-western Brazil, which provides no escape for the eye. While Phantom explores the texture and immensity of the forest and 16 MM its sensuality, the photograph Spiral Forest 2 suspends this exploration in order to enable the discovery of the depth and luminosity of this ecosystem which is as hostile as it is fragile.
