Andalucía; Landscapes of empowerment

A visual journey in gift book format around the most inspirational landscapes of the South, which invite you to enter into a world of other dimensions, where to disconnect and lose yourself, to (re) discover yourself and your ability to create, express and share, and open up new horizons...

This publication brings together a collection of my work, expeditions and experiences of the past years among the most emblematic and diverse landscapes of the Andalusian geography.

From the subtropical forests of Los Alcornocales to the volcanic desert of Cabo de Gata, through ghostly stone labyrinths in the Torcal de Antequera, the high peaks of Sierra Nevada with its waterfalls, lakes and snow tunnels, visiting surprising and contrasting desert landscapes, undulating agricultural fields and pastures, deep and inaccessible ravines, centuries-old Oaks, autumn forests and magical "naive" landscapes with blossoming almond trees among others...

Contents

Apart from being a tribute to the beauty of the portrayed places, the publication also aims to highlight the mystical, profound and spiritual aspect of the landscapes, for considering the portrayed areas as places of empowerment, spiritual homes where to find peace, strength and inspiration, spiritual human shelters where to discover or recover the capacity of being in charge of one´s own life, to create, express, and share, points of departure to start or resume challenging paths towards new horizons...
To emphasize this quality, the publication includes inspiring texts, quotes and proverbs of writers and poets as well as a didactic unit dealing with the creative empowerment through artistic activity, in this case landscape photography.

Special collaborations

The book features an introduction which is a summary of the book "In the spiral of the energy", written by Ramón Fernández Durán and Luis Gonzalez Reyes, a reference work on the exhaustion of the cheap energy and its impact on the current industrialized and urbanized society.

The prologue is commissioned by the multitalented journalist José María Montero Sandoval, known among others as the director and host of "Espacio Protegido" and "Tierra y Mar" on Canal Sur Television and editorial director of the magazine iDescubre, who is also responsible for writing the comments that accompany the images.

Característics

The book will have a format 29 x 22 cm size, 176 pages, hard covers and contains 72 photos in full color. The edition is bilingual (Spanish/English) and features a quality design and printing.

Calendar

The publication will be finished at the beginning of December to serve as a gift book for Christmas and New Year.

The book is already finished and only lacking the funds for its publication.

Funding of the project

The funds raised will be used to cover the costs of the production of the book (design, translation and (pre) printing).

In case of raising more funds than expected this money will go to a travelling photographic exhibition.

About the rewards

Initially the distribution of the book for retail in bookshops is not foreseen, so the only way to get the publication is through participation this campaign.

The duration of the **personalized photo walk with tuition in Granada * is a day, the itinerary can be adapted according to your (photographical) interests.

The personalized photo walk with tuition in the natureis in a natural park or space in the Province of Granada of your choice, during a whole day, my only limitation is, as I explain below, not having a vehicle, so you will have to take me in your car, or we will have to walk or to go by bus.

It is possible to obtain copies of my former book on Andalusia, a large size publication made in the “Analog era”, together with the book of the campaign.

In the following link you can find a description of this publication:

The set of four bookmarkers that accompany the book are presented in an elegant gift envelope.

About my work

Although actually I am of northern origins (Holland) and worked in my country as a lawyer, I ended up accidentally with a life dedicated to the photography of nature in Andalusia.

In life you have either time or means, rarely you will dispose of both at the same time, in my case I chose for having time and compensate the lack of means with a good dose of imagination, passion, dedication and a great physical effort.

Since I do not have a car, the majority of the images are made during stays of several days in the countryside, so each image contains at the same time the story of an expedition. This apparent disadvantage forced me, or rather, enabled me, to spend days and nights in the mountains with the corresponding interaction and the comforting feeling of being part of these places, which has allowed me to obtain more “depth” in my pictures.

Thus publishing books is not only a pleasant way to share moments and places of great deepness and beauty but also like inviting you to step inside my most intimate “natural homes".

#06 / ¡Ya están de camino!

Ya están enviados los libros, al final he escogido un envío a través de un servicio de mensajería, no estaba presupuestado como tal pero he preferido optar por más rapidez y seguridad a la hora de la entrega de vuestras recompensas, sobretodo teniendo en cuenta las limitaciones de estas fechas.

#01 / #**¡Superada la primera prueba!**

¡Superada la primera prueba!

Muchas gracias por vuestra participación, por vuestro apoyo y generosidad, todavía queda mucho recorrido pero gracias a vosotrxs el importante arranque de la campaña ha sido bueno.

Quisiera disculparme por la escasa calidad de las imágenes en la web, parece que la plantilla no da para más, se pueden visualizar las imágenes algo mejor al pinchar la imagen y elegir “ver imagen”.

Os informaré durante la campaña de las novedades del proyecto, por ahora os dejo con una foto y frase acompañante del libro y mis mejores deseos para vuestra semana.
