These images were shot in Andalucía, that constitutes the biggest part of southern Spain. I narrate a story with color, leaded by the light and the shadows.
A story of observation and search on the roads. The roads that humans passing through, feeling, waiting, hiding or just closing their eyes. This is their moment, silent and unique which is part of their existence.
I focus on people and the way they interact with the surrounding elements. Elements such as the urbanisation, the pedestrians that crossing by, the culture within the roads. Many times the light is so helpful for the subject to stand out, that you can drastically change your search and drift down by it. I am used to try and find what fascinates me and it guides me to my subject, visually and emotionally.This was my quest for this image series, an Andalucian story.
