What is the point of three photographers traveling together to Argentina without a specific photographic purpose? Ground movements has the initial claim of being a project based solely on the mass registration of all kinds of experiences and situations from the simple act of traveling to take pictures.

The end result, however, is the demonstration of a failed mission: it is not only unable to provide the registration of a particular experience but also it demonstrates the impossibility of giving a conceptual meaning to a project that, when done, does not provides anything new, it makes no contribution and can be summarized as an exercise of imitation and plagiarism of known icons and shoots two thousand times.

Perhaps the fact that three photographers traveling together to Argentina without a specific photographic purpose has served as a selfish process of exchanging ideas and experiences, rethinking concepts and, ultimately, growth and learning. The result of all this has sparked endless ground movements.
