La Ruta de la corrupción

The images in the series are a geographical exploration of recent corruption scandals in Spain. Individually each image may seem somewhat insignificant, but seen as whole the impression is that the landscape and cultural identity of Spain are becoming tainted by political and corporate corruption.

The location of each photograph corresponds to a specific place in which a politician or a developer adjusted  land-values in order to make a profit.

The cause of corruption is a combination of many factors, but it is evident that human nature plays a part. It is part of human nature to consume and hoard in the name of self preservation.
