17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Cosmos - The beginning

Everyone has seen at least once in his life an image of the Cosmos, or a star of the NASA gallery. I remember the first time I saw a star on a photo. One thing that can not really be described because it's completely out of our daily lives. With this series Cosmos, I wanted to represent in my own way a star, our universe, the cosmos with our ocean. Because deep down, is not the ocean the cradle of life on earth?
