“The forest suddenly regained its innocent soul, in which all knowledge consists of understanding that the deepest, most serious and most extraordinary thing of all that we can see, think or do – upon this Earth – is this: to live.”

The Enchanted Forest
Wenceslao Fernández Flórez


“We have to do an exhibition together one day,” he said to Ángeles. She dismissed this with a gesture: “You must be mad. Just focus on doing your own thing.” This walk through the Fraga de Cecebre, in A Coruña, where Wenceslao Fernández Flórez found the inspiration for his book El Bosque Animado (The Enchanted Forest) is intended to be a memorial and homage to those moments when light and dreams surround us and whisper to us like the trees in that novel. Ángeles Sales painted a series in which she embraced trees with paper. She took rubbings of them with her hands, transferring the imprint of their bark onto the paper, then bringing colour to them with watercolours. She called the series Bosque (Forest), our enchanted forest. Signed, M.S.

Vari Caramés


“I don’t see myself quite as a photographer, nor as a painter, nor as an artist, nor as anything else.
I’m in between something that entertains me”.

Ferrol (A Coruña, Spain), 1953
When he was nine, he moved to A Coruña. When he was fifteen, his father, an amateur artist, gave him a totally manual Voiglander camera to photograph his paintings, drawings and iron pieces. Later he uses photography as a crib in his studies of Technical Architecture (which he never finished). He never pretended to make a living from photography but now he cannot live without it, he is interested in turning the ordinary into extraordinary.

He seeks to evoke, suggest and make the spectator dream. A lover of the timeless and the undefined, he learns to achieve effects from defects. He is not interested in fashions and trends. He uses B&W and color indistinctly. He believes that today’s world lacks poetry and that technology should not surpass emotions. He is more intuitive than “intellectual”, and believes that chance is more exciting than certainty.
