I’m going to restart the photography project Rurales now in September 2020. Please, if you wish to participate and you live in the León Mountains area (Spain) you can fill out the following form:


What is RURALES?

It is a photographic journey to meet real people who live in the rural villages of Northern Leon Province in Spain and the landscapes that surround them.

This artistic and social project aims to claim a current and realistic concept of life in a rural environment, in a context of depopulation, far from cities and urban areas.

The main objective is to claim, value and demystify the concept of rural life, through the stories of its own inhabitants, their motivations, their dreams, and their claims.

In turn, discover the beauty of our mountain landscape, forests, and villages.


The project begins in my town, Prioro (León, Spain), a municipality in the Picos de Europa Regional Park, where we live less than 350 inhabitants throughout the year.

From here and along the Eastern Leonese Mountain and the Picos de Europa, I will visit its villages in search of stories and experiences of other people who also regularly reside in their villages.


On this website I will update the status of the project that is currently in the creation phase (Between September 2020 and December 2020).


How is this project financed?

Currently this is a self financed project, but if you wish to make a donation to help me with the expenses don’t hesitate to contact me.

Can I have a copy of my picture when the project finishes?

Yes, I will send you a digital copy of the session (best pictures), and also a printed copy of the picture selected for the project. Just keep in mind that until the project finishes you will be not able to share the picture on the internet.

I don’t live fulltime on my village, can I still participate?

It depends, I’m looking for people that are currently living fulltime on a rural area, but you can contact me and I will check each personal situation.
