El Rey de los Abanicos


This is a lab of a designer of abanicos in Valencia. Each single one of the “fans” in his little atelier was unique and hand made and for the eyes it was amazing to look at him at work.

In this picture, the artist was talking  with a customer who was holding a picture and was asking the master to reproduce it. While the men were talking, I observed silently and I felt a sense of pride to live in a continent where this amazing traditions are still preserved.

Since I did not want to interrupt the inspiration section, I never had the chance to get to know the man’s name and his story. But, I guess he deserves to be called El Rey de los Abanicos.
