Jesús Madriñán (Santiago de Compostela, 1984) has one of the sharpest eyes for photography of the current panorama. His work has focused primarily on a reinterpretation of the portrait understood as an intermediate link between the psychological genre and the archive of typologies. His various series have addressed aspects of the nightclub scene in major European cities (Good Night London, 2011, or Dopo Roma, 2016) and in rural areas (Boas noites, 2013). His way of working is very meticulous and precise; he uses a large format camera and analogical film, which makes his reporting work, associated with speed, even more complex.
This project, fruit of the collaboration between Xacobeo and CGAC, is conceived as a renovation and updating of the perspective on the reality of the Way of St James and its pilgrims.
