About Estudio Elemental del Levante
Further delving into the photographic language that originated with Paloma al aire (2011), in Estudio elemental del Levante (carried out between 2010 and 2020) Ricardo Cases articulates the meanings rendered by his immediate environment, the Levante region (Spain), where he finds expressions of all phenomena, of all relations.
Beyond the classic icons of tourism - beach and paella -, Cases observes a series of hallmarks with deeper and more subtle meanings. That is where other symbols of Levante like the music bands, the palm groves and the construction industry make their appearance. As does the story of the red palm weevil (rhynchophorus ferrugineus): a parasite from Southeast Asia that attacks palm trees, causing them to wither and die.
