Light by Northwest
Photography by José Manuel López
There’s always a good reason for a walk across the deciduous forest. Every season offers its own experience.
There used to be a fuzzy border between the village and the woods, between home and the outdoors.
The scops owl’s nursery rhyme, the nightingale’s serenade, the blackbird’s flute … I simply love birds.
More than 10000 migrating cranes use Gallocanta as their stopover.
One bird, one foggy background, delightful moments for the wildlife filmmaker.

I'm proficient in traditional fine art printing processes. Prints are up to museum standards using professional-grade materials and matted in acid-free, archival mat board.
Traditional silver gelatin prints on fiber-base baryta paper, hand-made in the darkroom. Selenium or sulphide toned for archival longevity.
Alternative iron-silver process based on hand-sensitized watercolor paper. Palladium toned and chemical-wise similar to palladiotype.
I'm a Spanish electrical engineer and photographer. My work is mostly inspired by wildlife and the countryside of Galicia on the Northwest of Spain. Besides photography, I love fine art printing with traditional methods, wildlife filmmaking and field recording.
