  • Galicia, 1984

    When I was in Galicia I drove past this picture, I stopped the car and walked over to stand in front of this house. I was deeply impressed by the way nature was taking over the building, showing the past and the present, with a clear allusion to death and the strong smell of the living plants that invaded the photographic image that I felt but was not the one in front of me.

    On account of the light, I went away and came back the next day at dusk. When the light was just as I wanted it to create artistically and expressively what the photograph expressed.
