Presentation by Juan Aballe:

"Produced between 2011 and 2013 in Iberian Peninsula, this book deals with my relationship with the rural environment and the emotions brought about by the possibility of taking the big step of leaving the city and living closer to nature. Country Fictions also reflects on the photographic language itself and how we are influenced by previous representations and preconceived ideas about rural utopias. The illusion of escaping from contemporary society, the naivety and the hopes built around nature come together with the strangeness and the nostalgic look at a life that is not mine."

First book from Fuego Books, with a poem by the artist, and an essay by Eduardo Memeñe (in English and Spanish); a beautiful series, delicate and melancholic. The images were taken from the artist's website.
