THE CONQUEST OF THE RUINS shows the unknown side of the expansion of cities that endangers our future. Paleontologists. Quarry workers. Works in construction and private neighborhoods. The earth unites and separates them all, and each one has an interpretation of what this world is and how it should be inhabited.
