The unexpected death of a man, whose body is found charred in the forest near a highland village, will bring unrest in a community that -up until then- knew very well how to hide its secrets behind the façade of a traditional village.
Obscure stories, ambiguous opinions on the reason and circumstances of the incident, all will cast a dark web of fear and mystery over the village. And a general disposition to forget everything, so that the land won’t get ill-famed.
My desire to make images on the wake of this story, created the Dark Village. The fact that this is actually my home village, allowed me not only to shoot pictures right after the incident, but to also use older material of mine.
