To this day the bodies of up to 114,000 disappeared from the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939, and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, 1939-1975, lie in unmarked mass graves in roadsides, on the edges of towns and villages, in ravines or in fields.
The sites of the mass graves and related atrocity sites that have not been excavated or commemorated to this day. Many sites have been lost, have been hidden by new constructions or have disappeared without any hint or sign remembering their cruel past, revealing a lack of historical memory and justice in Spain’s society.
Fresh on the table! My food photography story on cooking with banana on the island of Tenerife has been published by the german ADAC Reisemagazin. Big thanks go out to chefs Sibia García (Tasca La Mesa Noche), Eduardo Pelayo, Esteban Gómez and bartender Petar Grishev Marinov.

I’m happy to see my series Spain’s Lost Memory 1936-1975 nominated for this year’s GoSee Award 2017 in the category reportage photography. Spain’s Lost Memory comprises photographs of the sites of the atrocities or of the mass graves, that have not been opened or dignified to date. The photographs were taken after sunset and before sunrise, the preferred hour for “walking” and executing people. In the case that you wish to vote click here.

My food story about Syrco Bakker’s restaurant Pure C in Cadzand, The Netherlands, published in Der Feinschmecker. “Syrco Bakker (1984) trained under chefs such as Sergio Herman, Jean-Georges Klein, Jonnie Boer and Gordon Ramsay is now in charge of Pure C’s kitchen staff. Syrco Bakker exudes work ethic, zeal and inexhaustible creativity. Being awarded a Michelin star in 2011 has already made it clear: Syrco’s cooking is part of the gastronomic premier league.”
