In his project, Endeavour, begun in Portugal in 2016, Verger uses the introduction of the eucalyptus in Europe as an example of the ubiquitous phenomena of transporting and implanting species around the world. His project is a tool for analyzing the complex ramifications of the influence of man on our surroundings. Given its geographical position and the importance of its maritime history, Spain has been the gateway for the eucalyptus and many other species in Europe.
Verger uses photography as a tool for analyzing the complex models of influence of man on his environs: man has shaped the terrain according to his necessities and desires, leveling coasts, digging valleys, and designing forests, disrupting in one way or another the appearance of nature.
