Jon Cazenave

Amalur (Basque Country, 2007-2012)

The Spanish photographer Jon Cazenave was born in the Basque country, a region with a strong thirst for autonomy. The Basque country is set off from the rest of Spain by mountains, permitting the growth of a vital language and culture. In its landscape, Cazenave says, nature blends with history and legend. The result is a mythic, magical land – the subject of Cazenave’s photography. By humanizing trees and animals, he creates a symbolic landscape that lays bare the soul of the Basques.
