Jon Cazenave is a Spanish Basque photographer.
Presentation on the artist's website:
" His approach to photography starts from an intimate anthropological perspective and develops into a language that incorporates the ancestral sign and symbol to contemporary creation. He works in the field of introspective questioning and the apprehension of knowledge through doubt and inner investigation, taking place in the universe that surrounds him.
