This project explores the line between myth and reality. The images evoke the world of superstition and folklore that created and continues to sustain Galician culture. Finis Terre is a reflection of mankind’s interaction with nature through creation and destruction. I believe that the myths are an essential part of the history and the identity of any culture because there are still cultures where myth is part of reality.
