The Iberian Peninsula is a geographic­al concept formed by Spain and Portugal, two geographic­ally united countries but separately by an invisible border.

'THE IBERIANS', the essay focused on my travels in these territorie­s throughout the first two decades of the 21st century. Visually narrating the things that happen while wandering around Iberia, how to write in a sketchbook.

Knowing a specific territory gives depth and meaning to my project; that is why my work is a continuous journey through Spain and Portugal. These are places where I explore the concepts of territory, borders, light, memory, and identity through observing the other.
