Rafaelem’s Cubanismo is a long-term documentary project aimed at bringing together/twinning two seemingly distant lands – Cuba and Andalusia. His series is an unexpected observation into the lifestyle and daily practice of these two populations.

His interest in documentary photography developed during his teenage years, when he found inspiration and creativity in the country life and personal experiences. Rafaelem works particularly with colour, creating timeless photographs that tell people’s stories. He is currently working on several projects about country life, including agriculture, fishing, and the oldest methods of providing food and shelter to humans.
