SUPEREUSKADI is a photographic essay of the Basque Country, charting a fabled land where everything — culture, industry, society and politics — revolves, like a great stone sphere, around the region’s own identity and idiosyncrasy. Amid a profusion of characters, situations, dogmas, landscapes and clichés, we travel back and forth via the gaze of Alicante photographer Vicente Paredes. He was drawn to the Basque Country by the radikal rock scene over thirty years ago, and he has since been awestruck by what he has witnessed, namely the friction between the essential and the extraordinary, between the reality and the myth of all things SUPEREUSKADI.
