These photos were taken during several visits to Spain between 2002 and 2008. In each of those years I have spent between one and two months working in Spanish archives and universities. I have had the privilege to travel across the country, to get to know its wonderful people, and to share in their daily lives. These pictures are but a small sample of the beauty I have encountered. I hope they will encourage you to experience it for yourself.
