This is typical for the way i love to work. A scene of human behaviour, of tenderness and connection that also works on a metaphorical level.

This is one example of a great project of mine, a collection of photos taken at the city beach of my home town, Las Canteras on Gran Canaria, Spain. I plan to publish a book with this material. This photo especially shows one landmark of this beach, the auditorio Alfredo Kraus, which is a concert hall.
