A retrospective of Manso´s photographs from the last 15 years with images taken on all five continents.
280 pages including texts by Manso himself and the photographer José Maria de Llobet. All texts are in English and Spanish.
An intimate, poetic, and deeply humanist way of looking at the world through universal themes like love, friendship, old age, nostalgia, the passing of time, childhood, family, loneliness, faith, the search for one’s path and the photographic act.
As Llobet writes in the prologue: Pictures taken on “Relaxed wanderings, no assigments to worry about, not even the will of “the artist who wants to exhibit his work”. Classic photography, with no complexes, and a tremendous sincerity above and beyond tendencies and modernities.”

In 1996 he took a course in Directing Cinema at the now non-existent E.C.I.B. and between 1996 and 1999 he studied photography at the I.E.F.C. Since then he has written and directed various short films, has published photographs in various specialised magazines and newspapers, and has taken part in a number of collective exhibitions. In 2001 he created The Pinker Tones with Mr Furia. Since then he has released a number of albums and has travelled all over the world performing.
