Avilés | 21 February 2017

 

Through adapting the Spanish tradition of taking a siesta on every working day, I went up to the hilltop in Avilés, where is a post-industrial town in northern Spain, for 6 days in a row with my video camera & tripod. I enjoyed the siesta in my own fashion, while my camera was capturing for me what went on at times.
