“Know ye, that on the right hand of the Indies there is an island called California very close to a side of the Earthly Paradise”

The Adventures of Esplandián, Garci Rodríguez de Montalbo (Seville, 1510)

Photographed in the city of Oakland, California, Last Best Hope is a visual essay that reflects on hope as a fundamental driving force of the human condition.

The images of Last Best Hope take reality as a starting point to create a fragmented narrative that is torn between idealism and delusion, between the search for a better life and the decay of a paradise that has long ceased to be one.
