Based in the Alpujarra mountains of Granada state, southern Spain, this project touches on the legacy of the Muslim civilization of al-Andalus over five hundred years ago in the fields of agriculture and animal husbandry, recorded in the C12th book Kitāb al-Filāḥa (The Book of Agriculture) by Ibn al-‘Awwām al-Ishbili of Seville.
Visually, the work was influenced by the still-life paintings of the Spanish masters (Cotán, Velasquez, Zurbarán and Goya) and the landscape photography of José Ortiz-Echagüe.
These photographic studies were produced as photogravure (intaglio) prints, a hand-crafted printing technique from the 1870s.
The work was compiled into a twin-volume, hand-bound book set, limited to 100 editions. See 'Books & Prints'.
