In La Alberca, Spain, this photograph captures the essence of tradition and the infinity. Behold, a meticulously crafted bun adorning the head of an elderly woman, serving as a profound symbol of heritage and the cosmos. This authentic, ancestral masterpiece weaves together the hair of time, evoking a deep sense of reverence. It stands as a testament to the rich cultural tapestry of the region. Through its elegant twists and turns, it beckons us to explore the interconnectedness of past, present, and future, transcending boundaries and connecting us to the timeless beauty of the universe.

My professional and academic trajectory passes through different countries. I have a degree in Hispanic Philology and has studied Anthropology, Marketing and Communication. My work focuses on photographic projects for companies and institutions dedicated to cultural, tourism and social development activities. My project Visual Anthropology – Identity and Heritage – is an essential archive to get to know our cultural heritage in a deep and reflective way, highlighting the work of promoting and disseminating the tangible and intangible heritage of the territories.
