Gegants


Gegants is a homage to peasantry. They are “Giants” for their harmony with the Earth and for their titanic force against adversities.

Agriculture has changed from being an important activity for the economy to become a minority, just a 2% of the population works in it.

The project has been done at Pla de Grau, Malgrat de Mar, 60 km from Barcelona by the coast.

In this space I work both the Earth and photography, at the same rhythm of nature.

To me, agriculture and analogue photography have the same cycle: sowing… waiting… harvesting.
