THE IBERIANS - @candylopesino
The Iberian Peninsula is a geographical concept formed by Spain and Portugal, two geographically united countries but separately by an invisible border.
THE IBERIANS is an essay about my travels through this territory visually narrating the things that happen while wandering around Iberia, how to write in a sketchbook. The knowledge of a specific territory gives depth and meaning to my project, that is why my work is a continuous journey through Spain and Portugal . They are places where I explore the concepts of territory, border, light, memory and identity through the observation of the other. As Fernando Pessoa wrote:"â€¦ Portugal and Spain, it would be said that the two countries have finally realized that a border if it separates, also unites, and that if two neighboring nations are two because they are two, they can morally be almost one because they are neighbors." In The Iberians I rediscover the common places, their people, their culture, their realities circumscribed to a geography, in short I explore the human condition.
