In spring 2015, Kevin Faingnaert set of to photograph the people living in Matavenero, a remote ecovillage high up in the isolated mountainous region of North West Spain. Since 1989 the village has been populated by an international mix of strong, independently-minded people who want to live simply in harmony with nature. During the photographer’s stay in Matavenero, he got to know the inhabitants and their vision of a sustainable lifestyle quite well. This resulted in a series of intimate portraits and spellbinding landscapes.
