Over the years, more and more pictures have been accumulated in his archive, some of them are now here, and there will be more. On the one hand, various works by the photographer are exhibited. On the other hand, he is particularly interested in his adopted country. Due to his professional activity, many of the photos were taken on tours through Andalusia.
Over time, more and more pictures are being added, new ones as well as older works that are digitized piece by piece. So it is worthwhile to stop by again and again.
