His project in Cáceres Abierto 2019

Photography as a personal travel journal. Patio de butacas (Orchestra stalls), presented at El Brocense Art Gallery, is a work developed over several years that spans various cinemas, theatres and auditoriums from different cities around the world. A change of perspective with regard to the protagonist of the scene that silently places us opposite an empty landscape. The Cáceres Museum showcases the viewing of audiovisual piece Viaje a las Hurdes de Buñuel (Buñuel’s journey to Las Hurdes), that uses the filmmaker’s universe as a reference, including the scenes where his controversial film Tierra sin pan (Land without bread) was shot, and Muros de pizarra (Walls of slate), a photography series about the forgotten realms of the slate, about the connection between man and nature.
