It is a magical land that where Flor Garduño moves, holding her camera. A land reminiscent of Mexico, where she was born; a land pervaded by myths and legends; a land plunged into a voluptuous and sensual nature, kissed by the sun of those exotic and ancestral places.

Trilogy is a collection of the works Garduño realized throughout many years of photography between Mexico and Europe. Her great and magnificent visual production develops through a "dance" in three movements. The overture is Bestiarium, in which real and fictional images of enchanted animals come to life as metaphors of our dreams and passions. Then we have Fantastic women, a celebration of the feminine universe and of the mystery and sensuality that spring from the female body. The dance ends with Silent natures, where Garduño contemplates wilderness because, quoting the photographer herself, "whenever I think of Silent natures, I must confess that I created these photographs for myself, to maintain my playful spirit throughout all these years."
