Alejandra Loreto’s artistic work deals with our relation to the physical and built environment. Her great source of inspiration has been travelling, living abroad and different cultures. Through architecture and photography, she has found different ways of understanding how the urban and geographical environment influence our "identity" and the meaning of “home”.
