THE IBERIANS BY CANDY LOPESINO
Manuelina's window and cobbled street. Manuelino's architectural style is a Portuguese variation of the Late Gothic style that arises during the reign of D. Manuel I. It is found throughout Portugal and Spain in the Iberian Peninsula in border towns of Andalusia and Extremadura.

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.
