Luis Gonzalez Palma's Ara Solis Series is Simple and Imaginative

The Ara Solis photo series is as simple and serene as the sometimes-calm-sea it creatively mimics. Made up of rumpled bedsheets and toy ships rather than actual rolling waves and manned boats, the Ara Solis series is beautifully playful. The soft bedroom light and dark shadows give the photoshoot a serious tone, however, that balances out the quirky elements and makes imaginations soar even higher.

Shot by Guatemalan photographer Luis Gonzalez Palma, the Ara Solis photo series "appears to be symbolic of the European migration to the west and settlement in the Americas with a dream," according to My Modern Met. His work often focuses on his Latin and Mayan heritage, and the Ara Solis series is no exception. Its title suggests ancestral ritual practices that appealed to the gods for good fortune.
