At the end of the 1960s, the artist César Manrique returned to the island of Lanzarote to turn it into an ideal holiday destination where art and nature went hand in hand, conserving the peculiarities of the island. Fifteen years after his death, thousands of tourists visit the island in search of sun and sand. However, the island maintains a living consciousness, the imprint of a world with an expiry date which shows us the difficult co-existence between tradition and progress.

Starting from the true story of the Senegalese rap group, “Secteur S”, we cover the phenomenon of the immigration which comes to the Canaries, through the testimony of the reality and the day to day life in Africa. Many of the millions of people who live in Africa near to the Canary Islands, are in a dramatic situation which obliges the youngest among them to risk their lives in search of those supermarkets, parks, football fields and those residential areas that they see on television .

Since the early 1980s, he has worked as a photographer and has had several individual and joint exhibitions.
