THE LIGHT OF THE PASSION. Views from the soul

La luz de la pasión. Miradas desde el alma is a selection of those works that the author considers the most representative of his large religious collection.

Following a theme widely addressed particularly in his home city of Seville, he provides a more intimate portrayal, far from the standard snapshots of sacred iconography, to reveal his interest in detail, atmosphere, the relationship between the people and their traditions, or the opportunism of the captured moment. 

This collection is encapsulated in that double interpretation that so clearly defines Easter Week in Seville, which without forgoing its spiritual meaning reflects anthropological and popular aspects. On the one hand, there is the timelessness of the rites themselves, while on the other, the city is seen as the necessary backdrop.
