‘Obscuria de Profundis’ was developed from 2016 to 2020. It is a search for visual answers to the riddle of existence. Tolo uses everyday objects that correspond with allegorical objects in the cosmos. They illustrate the path that the species have traveled from its origin to the present time. Looking for the resolution of the oldest enigma, that of existence:

What are we?
Where do we come from?
Where are we going?

It remains the main reason that moves the species to continue. From the dark path to the light of knowledge.

Parra's photographs are mixed with found images to create a visual dialogue between eras and matter. Attempting to answer, though fiction, those real questions.

“Perhaps man has done nothing else since his birth as a species rather than wandering in an infinite desert of nothing. A dark and unknown dimension to his consciousness in which his only destiny is the eternal search. Although the result is always to get the answer that he still knows nothing and that silence is the only answer infinity gives him.”

— Tolo Parra
