Esperpento, Íñigo Royo

This work was created by combining aerial views of Spain obtained from “Google Earth” and extracts from Ramón María del Valle Inclán’s “Bohemian Lights”.

Valle Inclán’s play, published in 1920, reflects the Spanish society of the time, among other things. The play spares no one, every class is victim and contributor of a deteriorated society. Iñigo Royo’s work reminds us how the reality Valle describes still exists nowadays.
