Around Flamenco by Oliver Weber

Every country has its fair share of folktales and legends with Spain certainly not being the exception. Andalucía in particular, which has a rich history, has some mysterious, spooky and scary stories

Every country has its fair share of folktales and legends with Spain certainly not being the exception. Andalucía in particular, which has a rich history, has some mysterious, spooky and scary stories – like El Espíritu Flamenco.

Sandwiched between the popular Algarve (in Portugal) and the Spanish Costa de Sol, the Costa de la Luz is little appreciated by foreign tourists. Drive here in summer, though, and you’ll find the roads busy with Spanish holidaymakers, their cars packed with bedding and supplies for their annual decamp to the coast.

However – and here’s the secret – make the trip in September and you’ll find warm weather and just a handful of summer stragglers to share beach space with. And lovely people around you.

Oliver (born September 7, 1970 in Munich, Germany) is a german photographer,  physician and professor of visual arts. Currently he lives and works on the Canary Island of La Gomera.

He has become more widely known through numerous features with reputable magazines and publishing houses e.g.: BBC, ARD, Bertelsmann, Die Zeit, Random House, Merian Magazine and Stern Magazine.

2009 an interview with Oliver Weber has been added to the TWO WAY LENS – project.

Oliver Weber is the first german photographer who is included in Two Way Lens.

2011 Oliver published his second book ANALOGUE, which was featured by The Camera Club of New York during its photo book fair July 2011.

Weber took part on several “solo” and “group” exhibitions including his work, like the DOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany (one of the world’s most important exhibitions for contemporary art), the PHOTOKINA in Cologne, Germany (the world’s largest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries) and LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA, Italy (2017). 2015 Oliver received his Professor of Visual Arts at California University.
