National Geographic Society Grant Rutopia

Mar 1, 2021
The National Geographhic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration has awarded me a grant to continue my project 'Rutopia' on the repopulation of abandoned ruin villages in northern Spain. Increased climate change awareness has resulted in a revaluation of rural areas, which has been given an extra boost by the current Covid-crisis. In this project I will be documenting life and efforts of residents in three ruin villages while creating their utopian mini-societies.

I am very grateful for the possibility to continue my beloved project and incredibly honoured to become part of this worldwide talented and impactful community as a 2021 National Geographic Explorer.
