"I was born in the parish of Seixón in 1929.I started with photography in 1952, and dedicated myself professionally to it until 1972.This coincided with the flooding and relocation of the old village of Portomarín.I wanted to use my camera to capture the landscape, houses, people and the way of life of a village always looking at the river.I knew that when the reservoir came, everything would disappear.The photographic memory can help those living to remember, and the next generations to discover.Our roots are down there.If we do not have memories, then we do not have anything"
