Kitab al-Filaha, the Andalusia project

Based in the Alpujarra mountains of 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.
