Ana Galan: Viv(r)e la vie!
Spanish photographer, Ana Galan, has created a life affirming project, Viv(r)e la vie!, that looks at couples from around the world, particularly in Spain, Finland, and the United States. Her portrait approach replicates the formula that first emerged in the 15th century in Italy and can be associated with the work of Jan Van Eyck, where figures are placed in an idealized landscape.
Images from Viv(r)e la vie!
The photographs give visibility to people which, for a certain time, have lacked such visibility. This series, at the same time, documents the cultural diversity that exists between different cities and countries. The objective of this project would be to form an extensive visual transcultural inventory, almost as small histories of social and anthropological life of some people that are reaching a mature age, but remain active.
