Las Afueras: The Neighbourhood of the Cemetery
PHOTOGRAPHY- NAPIER '18
Las Afueras (The Outskirts) is a photo-documentary
which portrays a young community growing up in the
outskirts of a dormitory city, focusing on their feeling
of uncertainty about the future.
"The Spanish government and the media declare an economic recovery in Europe, but everyday life does not change for the working-class youth. Jobs are
temporary and precarious, and this is pushing young people to emigrate.
Las Afueras looks beyond the false narratives presented by the government propaganda and media, by documenting the reality of the young, working-class community in Iviasa. The older locals refer to it as ‘the neighbourhood of the cemetery’."
