Francisco Reina shot the series 'Altered States' as a symbol for manipulation and lies. Manipulation is the act of representing something false as real, a negative as positive, a degradation as beneficial. In his series, Reina covers the truth with a blood red veil, seemingly hiding a mysterious secret. In Reina's opinion 'the picture of the world that is constantly being shown to us has nothing to do with reality because the truth about every single event is buried under a mountain of lies.'
