THE EMPTIED SPAIN

THE EMPTY SPAIN

Some areas in Spain have a lower population density than the most uninhabited  parts of Lapland or northern Finland, already in the solitudes of the Arctic Circle.

The series The emptied Spain  is a short tour of the different traditions in Teruel and Ciudad Real small villages. Bull fight using natural orography as a square; Holy Week processions and drums, almost without parishioners; ranchers lowering the logs down the Tajo River. In these regions, far from everywhere, local traditions remain rooted, and express the identity of places where the time slows down.
