Los Hijos del Ciervo is a documentary work made in one of the most depopulated territories in Europe, the Upper Tagus Valley (Guadalajara, Spain).
Developed by Alicante photographer José Luis Carrillo, in this work the author explores the special relationship that the subjects of this region have with nature and their Celtic past.
In 2021, the University of Cádiz grants him the La Kursala Scholarship to be able to publish a book with the result of the five years of work carried out. The book was conceived alongside the designer Juanjo Justícia, from the well-known Underbau studio, and published in collaboration with the Catalan publishing house Luminic. In 2022, he wins the Revela´t Festival with this work.
In this presentation talk, the author reveals the project carried out and reveals the process of creating the book, explaining the decisions taken in the design with the aim of transferring his particular vision of this region.
