Roots (El Pla de Grau)
"In front of the terrestrial attraction, there is the celestial attraction", said the Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva.
"La Pagesia" (the peasantry) receives this double attraction. On the one hand, the knowledge provided by its means of production: the Earth. On the other, the experience acquired from the observation of the atmosphere: the Sky.
In this particular case, the gravitation occurs in a small 5km2 natural space on the Mediterranean coast. Just 56 km away from Barcelona, “El Pla de Grau” in Malgrat de Mar.Here is where I cultivate the land and photography, here is where my entire photographic project has been carried out.
I have had many intellectual, philosophical and spiritual influences, but none as direct as the agrarian culture passed down to me by my father. Everything begins from him, including this photographic work.
