St. John of the Cross

During the last year I spent many hours reading the poetry of Saint John of the Cross and also his biography. It had such a profound effect on me that I decided to visit the places where he lived, trying to see a bit of what he saw, to be where he was, in an innocent attempt at better embracing his philosophy.

The project is incomplete, since there are still unchecked places and also some others that demand a second, more thoughtful visit. I will do so when I’ve saved enough time and silence to do so.

All photos were taken with the Rollei SL66e and Portra 400. I am satisfied with the results but next time I will bring the Mamiya 6 or the Mamiya C330 instead. The Rollei is not only way heavier but it also feels a bit fragile to be used in the countryside with dust and all.
