Candy Lopesino Sabin
The Iberian Peninsula, a geographical region encompassing Spain and Portugal, presents an intriguing study of two countries that are physically connected yet seemingly divided by an invisible border.
In “The Iberians,” photographer Candy Lopesino Sabin embarks on a visual odyssey, documenting the artist’s travels through this rich and diverse landscape. The series serves as a visual sketchbook, capturing the essence of the Iberian Peninsula as experienced through the lens of an observant wanderer.
By exploring concepts such as territory, border, light, memory, and identity, Lopesino Sabin delves into the heart of Iberia, seeking to understand its people and culture through the eyes of an outsider.
Borders, Memory, and Identity
As Fernando Pessoa said, Portugal and Spain may be separate nations, but their shared border unites them, allowing them to be almost one in spirit due to their proximity.
In “The Iberians,” Lopesino Sabin invites viewers on a journey of rediscovery, unearthing the commonalities that bind these two countries together in a shared geographical space.
Through a series of incredible shots, the photographer reveals the unique places, people, and cultural realities that define the Iberian Peninsula. This exploration serves as a testament to the human condition and the ways in which our experiences are shaped by the lands we inhabit.
