Unha forza do pasado
A Force From the Past
Starting from the religious myths that inspire the Camino de Santiago and its symbolic end in the Portico de la Gloria, I established a route photographing both ends of the Mozarabic Xacobean route: Almeria and Galicia. A beginning and an end, alpha and omega, two opposites in which, through casual and programmed encounters, my fantasies confront reality. Through a series of recreations around the biblical notions of paradise, limbo, purgatory, or the promised glory that follows death, I went in search of a spiritual side historically represented as a tale, a warning to submit to power and religious expansion.
