Juan Galán

I was born in Spain but for the last 14 years, I have been moving from one country to another for work, in search of experiences. I am interested in how life is composed of movement and change; understanding societies through one’s identity as an individual, and investigating and recording knowledge of the reality of one’s existence.

I graduated in Psychology and my work has been constantly influenced by it as well as philosophy, especially existentialism. I am based in Bari (Italy), currently working on long-term projects in Southern Italy and Greece.
