Between bears and brañas

Somiedo and its rugged territory, with deep valleys and peaks over 2,000 meters, is one of the wildest and best preserved mountain environments in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. It was recently named by the famous Forbes magazine as “The Spanish Yellowstone” and by National Geographic as one of the best destinations in the world.

Romain, your guide

More than 3 years now that I have been working to explore, photograph, film and write. To depict the savagery of a world where the last great predators of Western Europe live. The Somiedo Natural Park is a natural gem in the heart of the Cantabrian Mountains where you can find unique flora and fauna. From the smallest bird, the Three-banded Kinglet, to the largest mammal in Europe, the Cantabrian bear.

To enter into the intimacy of these animals and more particularly that of the bear, it took me many months in the field. I had to go back to the most basic things. In a world where everything goes (too) fast, I had to adapt, slow down, live with the seasons to finally live with the bears.

Pour enter dans l’intimité de ces animaux et plus particulièrement celle de l’ours, il m’a fallu de nombreux mois de terrain. J’ai du revenir aux choses les plus fondamentales. Dans un monde où tout va (trop) vite, j’ai du m’adapter, ralentir, vivre avec les saisons pour enfin vivre avec les ours.
