‘The permanent dissatisfaction is one of the more blatant traits of the human species; a restlessness that never allows our spirit to calm down, pushing us to break quiescence and to head into the unknown. When passion joins dissatisfaction, we’re endowed with an unstoppable motivation; an irrational energy that fills our chest and that makes us rotate the Earth with the force of a thousand tides. But dissatisfaction and passion can only achieve true momentum when they’re fuelled by creativity, making the impossible possible, taking us farther, higher and faster, like never before. And when everything comes together in a single moment, a photograph is the most special way to retain this one of a kind memory, rendering the planet and human uniqueness in a single frame of light. Every image thus becomes a step towards immortality and the foundation that will inspire the next new adventure, as the edge of world is still out there for us to reach. | Text and photos by © Joel Santos – www.joelsantos.net ‘
