 Momentum

Is a series of photographies of a Granadero in motion. Its inspired by the moment of Cabral´s lunge at José de San Martin in order to save him, in the Combate de San Lorenzo(battle) in Argentina, back in 1813. Sargent Cabral shouted Viva la Patria* (Longlive the Homeland) while hurling himself.

Momentum is the driving force or advancing strength of a development or course of events.
