The sun disappears behind the mountain peaks,
cold winds torment the valley
and awake the dreams of this night

Another photo that I made on the occasion of the exhibition 'El Duende' in 2017. I made two series of photos in the mountains near Bellano, Italy. When making those series, the theme of the exhibition inspired me. I went looking for the spirit of mountains and valleys.
Duende is identified as the spirit of evocation, physical and emotional response elicited by art.
Having the Duende is having that thrill that makes you smile or cry when seeing a particularly expressive artistic performance.
The term is often used in folk music in particular in Flamenco, during the most intense performance.

'Valley Of Dreams (2)' is a new photo in my collection 'To The Top'.

Prints are available in my Saatchi Art portfolio at the artwork page or contact me for a quote.

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on what we lose when we continue on the road of 'never enough'.
