“Our experience in this world is so ephemeral; we can only hope to tread this world as silently as possible,” Gil-Roldàn says. Her latest editorial is inspired by silence and highlights its peculiar power to attune our connection to the world.“For an islander like me, silence is to be found in front of the sea, as well. Its dance with the wind, so imperceptible on a day when the water looks flat as a mirror, is imprinted in us and we perceive it as the most perfect of all silences.” Gil-Roldán experiences the rarity of nearly complete silence at the San Ponç swamp, Spain, at dawn, as mist, sun, and clouds create perfect unity. Rich in narrative, the images are inherently natural—the subjects look almost undisturbed, as if unaware of the camera. Cloaked in golden sunlight, there is a gentleness to them; they instill closeness and feelings of quietude. Conceived with a documentary touch, the editorial advocates for an industry that progressively becomes more in tune with nature, by supporting local and sustainable brands. “We should strive for a life that resembles a whisper so that the earth can finally breathe out peacefully,” she concludes.
